A Short EMI Analyst™ Overview

What is EMI Analyst?

EMI Analyst™ is software that calculates frequency domain electromagnetic interference for cable-connected circuits.

EMI Analyst™ Focuses on the Cause of EMI Problems

Most EMI issues are cable-related.

It is well known in the EMI industry than most products fail at least one electromagnetic interference test on the first try. And most of those failures involve electrical cables.

Cables are electrically long and act as unintentional antennas. They pick-up and radiate fields quite efficiently. Circuitry connected to cabling, or inadvertently coupled to cabling, provides a convenient path for energy transfer to and from cable conductors. Grounding, bonding, and filtering problems often show up on cables.

To make things worse, cable resonances are challenging to predict and are at the heart of many EMI problems.


What Can EMI Analyst™ Do for You?

With emphasis on cable-connected circuitry, EMI Analyst™

* models your design, filtering, and cabling
* calculates EMI performance
* prevents EMI test failures and compatibility problems

It’s ideal for analyzing power converters, inverters, digital data buses, control circuits, and circuitry that carries common mode noise.

EMI Analyst™ is an intuitive software suite that predicts and prevent test failures, aids in designing EMI control measures, and boosts system electromagnetic compatibility.

EMI Analyst™ is intuitive, accurate, and effective.

EMI Analyst™ is a 4-in-1 EMI Analysis Tool
