Proper electromagnetic (EM) shielding is often essential for electronics products to successfully comply with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards. Metal enclosures are one of the most common approaches towards preventing radiated electromagnetic interference (EMI) that would cause test failures. However, not all metal enclosures are created equal. Ventilation holes, slots, cables, and gaskets can negatively impact the shielding performance of enclosures. This becomes a balancing act between meeting system requirements (e.g. temperature mitigation) and complying with regulatory EMC limits. This webinar will demonstrate how leveraging Ansys simulation tools provides a clear picture of your enclosure’s EM shielding effectiveness.
An ideal enclosure can block unwanted RF signals both entering and/or leaving the equipment under testing (EUT). Using an incident wave excitation within Ansys HFSS, you can visualize and quantify the shielding effectiveness and likelihood of success against radiated immunity regulatory testing. Similarly, by leveraging a wide-band antenna from the Ansys HFSS Antenna Toolkit, you can rapidly evaluate our enclosure’s suppression of EMI radiating off your EUT. HFSS’s built-in Optimetrics tool enables one to create parametric analysis sweeps around enclosure “imperfections” (slots, holes, gaps, etc.) to find the best tradeoff while meeting other system requirements.
