Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 42, 191-203, 2013


This paper discusses a conducted emission measurement of a cell phone integrated circuit. The industry standard measurement method is used to compare the measurement result to the defined limit line. A data analysis method-short time fast Fourier transform (STFFT) is presented to help to analyze the result. The data consistency and repeatability is also analyzed.
