Automotive systems are becoming more complex with each new technical development that is added to them. This increases the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) challenges for the automotive platform. Passing EMC requirements is critical for keeping projects on schedule and on budget.

Learn how to use simulation for the following:

  • Parasitics extraction for:
    • Power modules
    • Busbar
    • Cables
    • PCBs
    • Magnetics
    • Emotor
  • IGBT circuit modeling
  • EMI filtering solutions
  • Conducted emissions
  • Radiated Emissions
