Topic: "VAC Nanocrystalline Components – The EMI Solution” - Vacuumschmelze (VAC)

Within a background of VAC product offering and technical support by VAC, this paper illustrates how EMC performance can realize significant improvements in many situations. Here we plan to use a Picoscope 3206B along with a few self-built accessories to quickly judge the improvement offered by a particular experimental configuration right at the designers own workstation. We will also examine a few case studies where VAC’s technical team improved cost and/or performance of ferrite based EMI filters by filter-order reduction based on broad-band feature of nanocrystalline CMC cores. Additionally, we plan to demonstrate VAC’s “CMC QuickDim” simulation program which predicts the impedance to expect from a given CMC design combination of Core + Turns + Wire + Current + Imbalance. http://www.emcsociety.org/2012%20Events/CMC%20Brochure.pdf
