High resolution EMC and EMI testing has never been this fast! (min. resolution ≈ 120 microns)

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. ERX+ enables the PCB and design engineers to diagnose EMC/EMI problems between 150 kHz and 8 GHz. ERX+ provides 7 levels of resolution (120 microns - 7.5 mm). Level 1 resolution (7.5mm) 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. There is no need for an external spectrum analyzer to run ERX+. Built-in spectrum analyzer turns ERX+ into a plug-and-play test system. ERX+ 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. ERX+ allows board designers to pre-test and resolve EMC and EMI problems early on, thus avoiding unexpected EMC compliance test results. ERX+ 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.
