Application Notes


Application notes in relation with IC-EMC have been released starting 2009 to illustrate some specific aspects of EMC modeling of ICs, in order to avoid oversizing the IC-EMC user's manual. Some new case studies have been described, as well as some specific aspects of modelling (BCI probe, effects of temperature, package model, etc.). The application notes may be proposed for publication in this web page. Please contact the authors for more information.
