Efficient Electromagnetic Simulation of Shielding Mechanisms in Microwave Ovens

The door to a microwave oven forms part of the heating cavity, allowing access to the oven interior. The seal around the door is never perfect, so electromagnetic fields will leak out of the oven, potentially interfering with other electrical equipment or exceeding safety limits for power levels in human operators. Oven designs have to meet legal requirements for the amount of power which can leak beyond a certain distance from the oven (due to human exposure concerns), and also have to meet electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. This article discusses how electromagnetic simulation can be used to design effective shielding mechanisms in order to adhere to these standards.

Analyzing Power Integrity Issues from Power Plane Interaction

When a printed circuit board (PCB) includes a power plane that is near to signal traces or other power planes, there is a significant risk of energy transfer between parts of the system. Not only does this coupling lead to power switching noise being transferred into data signals, it also means that power supply systems may demonstrate additional resonances that are not seen in the individual components. This can affect the power integrity of the PCB and may reduce its speed or reliability. This paper will explore some of the potential power integrity issues that can affect a PCB and explain how simulation can be used to help reduce these effects.

A full-wave 3D electromagnetic simulator can be used to simulate and visualize the propagation of electromagnetic fields across PCBs. This article will describe how CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® can be successfully used to characterize the response of high-speed channels, and how typical SI results and eye diagrams can be numerically calculated to predict the response of a channel.

Matching circuit optimization for antenna applications

Impedance matching is an essential part of antenna design. The input impedance of an antenna needs to be reasonably close to the amplifier impedance, otherwise the signal is reflected back to the amplifier and not radiated by the antenna. This white paper discusses the optimization of matching circuits especially to antenna applications.

Installed Performance of Communication Antenna Arrays

The presence of multiple communication antennas on a tower means that antennas may have to be installed in sub-optimal positions. Electromagnetic simulation can be used to design and optimise the positioning of the antennas on the tower. This article will describe how multiple solvers in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® can be combined to predict where to install an omnidirectional stacked bicone antenna array to minimise loss of omnidirectionality.

Microdul gains deeper insight into finger detection sensors with CST EM STUDIO

Microdul produces proximity sensor chips that can be used with remote sensing plates. Changes in plate capacitance are detected by a digital auto-calibrating algorithm. An approaching human finger typically causes a switching operation. The main challenge is to develop a sensor which can reliably distinguish between intentional switching operation and environmental interference.

Multiphysics Approach to Magnetron and Microwave Oven Design

The magnetrons used in microwave ovens operate on the same frequency band as Wi-Fi equipment, and the radiation they release can interfere with the operation of wireless networks. This paper presents a multiphysics simulation of a magnetron using CST STUDIO SUITE®, with the aim of testing the electrical, magnetic, thermal and mechanical characteristics of a low-interference magnetron design
