Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is an integral part of the development of any electronic device. By law,
products must comply with international EMC standards which regulate EM emissions and the susceptibility of
electrical and electronic systems in order to be sold. A successful product must strike a balance between EMC and
competing design requirements such as size, cost and performance, and this can pose major challenges to engineers.
The earlier a potential EMC problem is identified, the less disruption it causes to the design process. By including EMC
compliant design at an early stage, additional costly development iterations can be avoided later on. Simulation
using the CST EMC STUDIO® software package – a module of CST STUDIO SUITE® – allows problems to be
identified and corrected from the start of the design process before the first prototype is even built. The software
includes a range of solvers, ranging from PCB design rule checkers to full-wave 3D solvers to specialized cable and
PCB solvers, which can be linked and hybridized with the CST® System Assembly and Modeling (SAM) framework.
Electrical Fast Transient/Burst (EFT/B) Susceptibility of an LV Circuit Breaker
The coupled voltage at component level has been simulated using CST MICROWAVE STUDIO SUITE® for two PCB releases of the same Low Voltage Circuit Breaker (LV-CB) electronic control scheme. The results show a good agreement with actual measurements.
Crosstalk Effects of Shielded Twisted Pairs
This article deals with the modeling and simulation of shielded twisted pairs with CST CABLE STUDIO™. The quality of braided shields is investigated with respect to perfect solid shields. Crosstalk effects are calculated for unshielded twisted pairs,...
Modeling HIRF Effects on Aircraft
Electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) can cause electronic devices to malfunction or fail altogether. High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF), from sources such as TV and radio stations, radar and satellite communication systems, may disturb the safe...
