Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Time: 11 am PDT, 2pm EDT, 18:00 UTC
EMC chambers are not the best tool to use for debugging when a device fails compliance tests or to diagnose root causes of failures. Detection of emissions hot spots using hand held sniffer probes can be effective but it is slow and does not deliver a full board picture of the problem. The probe array based Very-Near-Field scanning technique developed by EMSCAN allows real-time evaluation of the spatial distribution of emissions over the entire board.
Visualization of these fields overlaid on CAD files of the board provide tremendous insight the root cause of emission problems and assist with solving these problems. Combining the array based approach with slight mechanical motion provides the ability to measure with very high resolution and allows designers to even peer inside an IC.
In this Webinar, test results from real world PCBs and ICs will be shown, and applications of how the spatial distribution of emissions can be used to solve problems will be presented.
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
