Identifying, visualizing and minimizing EMC and EMI problems using 3D EM simulation


David Johns, CST of America


In today’s high tech world, companies are under tremendous pressure to innovate and bring new products to market with minimal delay. At the same time, electronics products are getting more challenging to design due to higher data rates, higher component densities, reduced physical space and demands for conformal/flexible structures. Designers and analysts often face competing design requirements, such as EMC and thermal conflicts. On a positive note, computational electromagnetic methods have evolved significantly over the last few decades and combined with incredible improvements in computing speed and capacity, electromagnetic simulation has become an integral and important part of the design process. This presentation will discuss the state of the art in EMC simulation and provide examples of identifying, visualizing and minimizing EMC problems.


David Johns

David Johns is currently the VP of Engineering for CST of America, responsible for CST’s technical support and engineering services in North America. He completed his PhD at Nottingham University in the UK in 1996 for his research work on the 3D TLM method for electromagnetic field simulation. David has over 25 years of experience in developing and applying computational electromagnetics to a wide range of applications including EMC, EMI, ESD, E3 and MW/RF and Antennas. He is a frequent speaker at the IEEE International EMC symposium and has authored many papers and articles on the subject of EM simulation.
