In This Article, a Method for Analyzing Coupling Mechanisms in Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Problems is Proposed. the Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) Method is First Used to Derive the Retarded Inductances and Capacitances between Different Mesh Cells. with the Introduction of a Novel Partitioning Algorithm, the Capacitive Coupling and Inductive Coupling between Arbitrary Layout Parts Can Be Quantified based on the Magnitude of the Displacement Current and Induced Voltage Drop. the Accuracy of the PEEC Models is Validated by Comparison with Different Commercial Tools. the Proposed Coupling Mechanism Analysis Flow Provides a Useful Prelayout Tool for RFI Risk Analysis.
