Time: 10:30 AM PT, 1:30 PM ET, 17:30 UTC
When a device fails compliance testing in the EMC chamber the best way to diagnose the problem is using the very-near-field. The array based scanning technique developed by EMSCAN can display these very-near-field emissions in real-time to aid in problem solving. The correlation of emissions to components on the PCB identifies the root causes and hints at potential solutions. Using this technique a designer can get an “emissions map” of a PCB or product in “real-time” and identify EMI and EMC problems early in the design cycle thus saving time and cost. This technique can also visualize the source of emissions that caused systems to fail compliance test and provide the insight required to fix the problem quickly. This presentation will included a discussion of the array based very-near-field technique as well as examples of real boards tested of the EMSCAN EMxpert system.
Ruska Patton, M.Sc. – Director of Product Management – is responsible for the evolution of EMSCAN's real-time near field measurement solutions. He has a comprehensive understanding of general EMC, EMI and RF design and troubleshooting, with excellent skills in related software applications and programming. Mr. Patton holds both a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in electrical engineering from the University of Saskatchewan. During his time at university, he was recognized with numerous IEEE awards and a distinguished research scholarship.
EMSCAN is the world leading developer of FAST magnetic very-near-field measurement technologies and applications since 1989, providing real-time test solutions to antenna and PCB designers and verification engineers, without the need for a chamber.
The EMxpert, a family of compact EMC and EMI diagnostic tools, and the RFxpert, a family of antenna measurement tools, enable engineers to quickly optimize their designs. EMSCAN solutions dramatically increase designer productivity and substantially reduce time-to-market and project development costs. www.emscan.com
