SCANPHONE 3D EMI Scanner (Augmented Reality)


Use the Scanphone’s cutting edge technology for:

  • Rapid EMC/EMI troubleshooting
  • Visualization of emissions from circuit boards
  • Produce 3d graphics of EMI for team/management collaboration
  • Check for RF leakage from joints and gaskets
  • Verify shielding effectiveness of enclosures
  • Evaluate and compare emissions performance of components

Visualize Electromagnetic Fields in Augmented Reality

The ScanPhone acquires spectral data collected using a near-field probe and a compatible spectrum analyzer and maps the sweep data very accurately into a 3D space.

Standalone Mode

The Scanphone can also be used in a standalone mode, without a spectrum analyzer. In this mode, data is acquired using removable sensor cards. In this mode the bandwidth of the reading is set by the bandwidth of the probe and a single measurement is captured in each pixel rather than a full spectral-sweep. This is useful for fast scans to get a general idea of emissions from a PCB or product.

Standalone Mode

Choose from several sensors to measure from DC up to several GHz. Custom sensors can be manufactured upon request.

Standalone Mode Probes

Time-Domain Mode

In this mode, the Scanphone connects to an oscilloscope rather than a spectrum analyzer. In conjunction with a pulse generator (TLP), a disturbance can be injected into a circuit or enclosure and the path of the current can be traced. The oscilloscope waveform acquisition is synchronized to the injected pulse so the propagation of the signal can be measured accurately at every point on a circuit board (see example below).

This has applications in signal integrity – to visualize signal propagation and crosstalk, as well as ESD, to visualize the current path of the discharge.
