CS Analyst™

CS Analyst™ is a frequency domain application that solves interference injected on electrical cables.

CS Analyst™ Datasheet

Conducted Susceptibility Analysis

Use CS Analyst™ to predict voltage and current induced by low frequency electromagnetic fields and system operations and to evaluate the performance of system design elements such as cable shields, EMI filtering, and system grounding.

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

CS Analyst™ Property Controls

Shield Terminations

Account for shield termination method and its effect on cable shielding effectiveness.

  • Peripheral Shield Terminations
  • Wire Pigtail Terminations
  • Braid Pigtails
  • Flat Conductor Pigtails
  • Terminations at one end or both ends

Conductor Templates

Model loading, coupling, mismatch, and resonant effects of cabling using eight fully configurable conductor configurations. Select length, wire gauge, separation, ground plane, and shield attributes 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


Take into account the loading and resonant effects of circuitry in your system by accurately modeling the RF characteristics of your circuits. Easily accommodates the non-linear loading effects of Line Impedance Stabilization Networks required for standardized CS tests.

Frequency Range

  • 10 Hz to 100 GHz
  • Linear or logarithmic steps
  • Resolution 1 Hz (linear), 1000 pts/ decade (logarithmic)

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
  • Strand Material
  • Optical Coverage
