Coupling of Energy Into PCB Traces in a Reverberant Environment: Absorption Cross-section and Probability of Susceptibility

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Predicting the risk of susceptibility to electromagnetic interference for a system would be of significant interest to the EMC community. In this paper, we consider the coupling of electromagnetic energy into Printed Circuit Board (PCB) traces and how it relates to the power balance model of shielding effectiveness. We show results of some measurements of the absorption cross-section of a load on a PCB trace and compare them with previously published results.
