Our reviews have a proven track record of consistently finding design weaknesses and preventing EMC performance issues later. We review new concepts, prototypes and production level designs; the earlier you request our expertise, the better the outcome. We focus on Microcontrollers, GPUs, Memory, integrated circuits, and other technologies such as DDRx, USB, Ethernet, MOST, LVDS, HDMI, APIX, RSDS. We also review the design elements like enclosures, cables, interconnects, shielding, components, schematics, layout and grounding. Learn more about design reviews.
Simulation & Analysis
We perform 2D and 3D full wave analysis and optimize designs with cutting-edge EMC simulation tools such as Hyperlynx and CST Studio Suite. EMC simulation technology is used to identify the root cause for existing EMC failures, evaluate improvement ideas and illustrate EMC concepts for training purposes. We utilize accurate component models for all EMC relevant components including high-speed devices and passive components. Learn more about simulation and analysis.
EMC Pre-Compliance Testing
EMC testing on prototype samples is crucial to identify and correct performance issues before production. We offer a line-up of pre-compliance tests in our own lab or through one of our partner labs. The objective with our pre-compliance testing is to focus on high risk areas and quickly understand the performance margin rather than focusing just on pass/fail criteria. By understanding the design margin, we build confidence in product performance and help you make informed decisions to ensure success. Learn more about EMC pre-compliance testing.
Root Cause Analysis
Every effective solution to a problem begins with understanding the root cause. We have developed a set of proven, custom tools that we use to locate the source of even the most difficult EMC challenges. We pair those tools with established problem solving tools such as 8D (8 discipline), Kepner Tregoe, Fish-bone diagrams and PDCA (plan, do, check, act). After the source has been identified, we develop a range of improvements that fit within your cost and program-timing constraints. Learn more about root cause analysis.
We specialize in developing EMC lab capability and helping labs become recognized and accredited by institutions such as A2LA and NVLAP. We begin with test requirements and a lab scope before prescribing individual tasks required to reach the goal. We also help your lab put custom EMC bench capabilities in place that are used for engineering tests and measurements. Learn more about EMC lab development.
Our passion: helping engineers and students learn about EMC. The more educated and aware design engineers can become, the better the EMC performance of their product designs. We offer EMC training classes at your location, but also provide them in a classroom setting at the Grand Valley State University EMC Center. We use standard training courses or create custom courses based on your needs. Learn more about our training.
High-Speed and Circuit Analysis
Electronics designers routinely face challenges in developing robust digital communication interfaces that meet competing requirements. At E3 Compliance, we have a proven track record of understanding the challenges, and of leveraging our design, analytical and measurement experience to succeed up front in product development.
