Why EMProbe ?
Using Handheld probes to identify and resolve EMC/EMI issue testing has never been this accurate.
3D Precision Technology used to assist high density board designers to use off the shelf hand-held probes and/or Y.I.C. Technologies probes and visualise the root causes of potential EMC and EMI problems during pre and post EMC compliance testing.
EMProbe 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.
The EMProbe solution consists of a computer controlled Robotic Arm, Near Field probe and a customer-supplied spectrum analyzer, all controlled by the EMViewer Software.
Spectral scan, spatial scan, peak-hold, continuous scanning, spectral and spatial comparison, scripting, limit lines and report generation.
Continuous real-time for entire scan area (1,218 probes activated) when Level 1 selected: 5 sec.
Selected area 2.25 cm x 2.25 cm, 9 probes activated.
Level 1: <0.5 sec. | Level 2: 4 sec. | Level 3: 9 sec. | Level 4: 21 sec. | Level 5: 55 sec. | Level 6: 2 min 35 sec. | Level 7: 7 min 23 sec. | Level 8: 24 min 00 sec.
11 seconds for L 10 cm x W 10 cm (L 4” x W 4”, 178 probes activated) from 10 MHz span to 110 MHz and 122 kHz RBW. Scanning area, span and RBW are user selectable within spectrum analyser specifications
