An Integrated Near-field EMC Measurement System
Author: Dan Slater
This paper briefly describes the theory and application of a small near-field imaging system designed for EMC precompliance applications. This system produces EMI and EMS images of circuit cards, cables and related items. If extended by using a phase coherent receiver in a region of free space propagation, this same system can precisely measure the radiation pattern of directive antennas and image the multipath within an anechoic chamber or TEM cell.
