EMScannerR+

High speed 8GHz High Resolution EMC and EMI diagnostic tool on your lab-bench

High resolution EMC and EMI testing has never been this fast!

World’s fastest EMC/EMI diagnostic system has been reinvented to assist high density board designers to visualize the root causes of potential EMC and EMI problems during pre- and post EMC compliance testing.

EMScannerR+ enables the PCB and design engineers to diagnose EMC/EMI problems between 150 kHz and 8 GHz. EMScannerR+ provides 8 levels of resolution (60 microns – 7.5 mm). Level 1 resolution (7.5 mm) allows the engineers to visualize the hot spots, current loops or intermittent problems in real-time. After locating the unintended radiators, engineers can zoom into the problem by selecting the resolution level based on the density of the board design.

EMScannerR+ provides unique pre- and post-EMC compliance testing that images emissions. During any new PCB development process, design engineers must find, characterize, and address unintended radiators or RF leakage to pass compliance testing. EMScannerR+ allows board designers to pre-test and resolve EMC and EMI problems early on, thus avoiding unexpected EMC compliance test results.

EMScannerR+ quickly delivers repeatable and reliable results that pinpoint the cause of a design failure. As a result, the user can personally test the design without having to rely on another department, test engineer, or time-consuming off-site testing. After diagnosing even an intermittent problem, the engineer can implement a design change and retest. The results provide concrete verification of the effectiveness (or not) of the design change.

SCANNER USERS

Testimonials

The instrument provides spatial and spectral scans that allow design teams to cut one to two design cycles out of their product development process. It also reduces their EMI testing time by up to two orders of magnitude.
The design team conducted the scans on the EMxpert system in their offices. In a matter of minutes, they obtained the results. Testing the design in a third party chamber would have have been weeks away
