Radiation Noise Source Modeling and Application in Near-Field Coupling Estimation
Near-field coupling in mixed digital/RF circuit design is critical to system sensitivity for modern high speed electronic systems. This paper presents radiation noise source modeling methods and applies equivalent noise source models to near-field coupling estimations. The noise source can be either modeled by physics-based dipole moment model or Huygens's equivalent model with data obtained from near-field scanning. The fundamental principles of both methods are first studied by simulation. A clock buffer integrated circuit is first modeled as a dipole moment model. The tangential fields on Huygens's box can be calculated by a dipole moment model with negligible multiple scattering effect assumption. The noise coupling then can be obtained by surface integration of Poynting vector at the RF antenna receiving port by full-wave simulation.
