CS Analyst™

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

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.
