Simulation of EMC with SPICE

     The prediction of crosstalk, of the radiated emission of cables and of the pick-up of external fields by cables is one of the basic issue of EMC. We give here a lot of information on the creation of SPICE models for such computations.

     A paper presented at the Zürich EMC symposium in March 1991 dealt with the simulation of crosstalk and of field-to-wire couplings with a SPICE software. This seems to be the first paper published on the second subject. It shows the state of our research of these days, for the improvement of our SpiceLine Software.

     However, the best description of our current computation methods and practices in this area is presented in the user's guide of SpiceLine. Downloading the SpiceLine User's Guide (Adobe Acrobat file, 199 ko).
