Electromagnetic Compatibility & Coexistence (EMCC)

The research unit EMCC is going to change the way electronic based systems (EBS) are designed regarding Electromagnetic Compatibility & Coexistence. Right now, physical prototypes need to be at hand to gain knowledge on the EMCC behavior of the Device Under Test. By employing Model Based design starting from single components’ up to complex systems EMCC mature models, estimation of the EMCC behavior by simulation is the big goal. As a second important part, we use Model Based Design to explore the Multiphysics behavior of EBS, eg. influences on the parameters of magnetic materials.
