    Tough requirements on electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of electronic equipment forces the demand for low electromagnetic emission (EME) of integrated circuit devices. To enable an efficient application of measures reducing the noise emission, automatic model generation tools are needed to be part of the design flow. In this paper we present a method for high level modeling of dynamic switching ... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1400 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper addresses the generation of accurate macromodels of digital ICs accounting for both the functional and the out-of-band behaviour of devices. The proposed models that can be effectively used for immunity predictions are obtained from port transient responses only and can be implemented in any commercial tool based on SPICE or mixedsignal hardware description languages. The approach is de... View full abstract»

    The decrease in normal signal levels, the increase in the operating frequencies, and the use of digital electronics in modern systems have led to the need for heightened EMC considerations, and consequently, better EMC models. A preliminary mathematical model based on neural networks theory is developed for predicting the level of susceptibility of integrated circuits to conducted electromagnetic ... View full abstract»

    The performance of three different antennas typically used in EMC testings is thoroughly analyzed: A doubleridged horn, a trapezoidal logarithmic-periodic, and a biconical antenna. Those antennas are briefly compared considering their relevant characteristics, their radiation patterns, and their operational frequency range. However, the emphasis of this paper is placed on the relevant aspects rega... View full abstract»

    Near field data sampling techniques, including where to place observation points and how to pre-process the data, are investigated in respect to a Near Field-Far Field transformation. For a simple PCB, the optimum equivalent set of basic radiators is found through a Genetic Algorithm. The magnetic near field amplitudes for different observation surfaces of the PCB are obtained from Method of Momen... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (119 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a new, efficient and robust automatic solver switching strategy, called α-SAMG, tailored to linear systems of equations arising in PEEC-based EMC simulation. The PEEC method (partial element equivalent circuit) is an approach for transforming conducting objects into linear networks with basic electrical elements. Such equivalent circuit models can be simulated by c... View full abstract»

    The method of source modelling have been studied to estimate radiated emission at a distance of 10 m from the measured data at a distance of 3 m because the measurement facilities used the measurement at a distance of 10 m is expensive. However, the deviation between the measured and estimated values was more than 15 dB under a certain condition. In this paper, we study the method of improving est... View full abstract»

    Cardiac pacemakers are vital for many persons sufferering from heart diseases, and a malfunction of those devices can have terrible consequences for their wearers. Yet, in a signal environment evermore complex, the influence of external signals interfering with the normal operation of a pacemaker is getting stronger. We present an analytical linear model for a pacemaker and use it for a detailed i... View full abstract»

    Numerical simulations have been used to investigate the impact of occupant distribution on the field exposure threat due to a transmitter operating at 400 MHz inside a car. Eight different occupancy configurations involving the driver and up to three passengers were considered, and both 10 g and 1 g SAR measures were determined. The models suggest that mean SAR limits are likely to be reached at l... View full abstract»

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an effective method for diagnosis of diseases. During the imaging, the radio frequency (RF) coil, which is one of the important units in the system, radiates electromagnetic (EM) pulses to the human body and in response receives the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals emitted from the body. Therefore, it is necessary to estimate the specific absorption rate... View full abstract»

    The performance of EMI filters is severely influenced by the placement of passive components. This paper introduces a method to predict these effects and demonstrates its potential on a DC/DC-Converter for automotive applications. Design rules are derived for favourable placement of several types of passive components. View full abstract»
