CE Analyst™

CE Analyst™ is a frequency domain analysis tool that calculates conducted emissions produced by electronic circuits and systems.

Use CE Analyst™ to predict compliance with conducted emissions limits and to evaluate the performance of system design elements such as EMI filtering, circuit wave shape, and system grounding.

Purchase CE Analyst™ as a stand-alone application or as a component of the EMI Analyst™ suite. CE Analyst™ runs on Microsoft Windows.

Load Circuits

Accurately predict power line conducted emissions using Line Impedance Stabilization Network models and account for loading and resonant effects of circuitry to which your system is connected by accurately modeling end circuits using the same schematic capture program used for EMI Filters described above.

Conductor Templates

Conducted emissions are affected significantly by circuit loading, coupling, mismatch, and resonant effects of cabling. Use eight built-in, fully configurable conductor templates to design your cabling. Select length, wire gauge, separation, ground plane, and shield dimensions to match your system interconnects.

  • Unshielded wire pair
  • Shielded wire pair
  • Shielded single wire
  • Unshielded wire triple
  • Unshielded wire pair over ground plane
  • Shielded single wire over ground plane
  • Unshielded wire over ground plane
  • Shield wire pair over ground plane

Shield Transfer Impedance

Calculates shield transfer impedance, the true figure of merit for cable shielding effectiveness, using shield physical parameters, such as:

  • Number of Strands
  • Strand Diameters or Wall Thickness
  • Weave Angle
