ABSTRACT We introduce a modeling and simulation method to predict power/ground plane resonance and edge radiation coupled from the broken return current path of a through-hole signal via, and analyze the coupling and radiation mechanism. The approach is successfully verified with a series of measurements with various plane conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Wireless power transfer (WPT) technology has recently emerged as an innovative and promising technology, and its electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) has become a significant issue. In this study, we investigated the electromagnetic (EM) radiated emission and interference generated by WPT systems using resonant magnetic field coupling, especially in applications with multi-coil configurations. The change in coil resonance associated with multi-coil configurations was analyzed via the impedance profile. We measured the EM radiated emission and analyzed the results with respect to the coil resonance. An analog-to-digital converter chip was designed and fabricated to analyze the effect of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Based on measurement and simulation results, we verified that the EM radiated emission and interference increase at the series or parallel resonance peaks, depending on the source type. In addition, we verified that EMI can be reduced by using ferrite sheet shielding.

    ABSTRACT: When the high-frequency signal is transmitted through parallel plane by via, it encounters discontinuities at its reference planes, where the high frequency TEM waves are not guided smoothly between signal trace and the reference plane. As a result, the electromagnetic wave energy between the signals and return currents are redistributed, and electromagnetic waves at the parallel planes cavity are excited due to the absence of continuous return current plane at the via neck. The loaded energy is a main source of PCB edge radiation, and at the same time, at resonance frequencies of the resonator formed by the package's parallel planes, the noise electromagnetic energy in parallel plane cavity, such as SSN (simultaneous switching noise), is more easily to be coupled into via too, which may cause the deterioration of the signal on the via. To thoroughly study this phenomenon, this paper makes theoretical investigation of the influence of parallel plane resonance to via's SSN coupling based on cavity resonator theory and coupling mechanism to get the theoretical support for the influence of parallel plane resonance, especially the power/ground resonant impedance to SSN coupling. Because the SSN coupling above is maximized, when the impedance of the power/ground system is maximized, the ways to mitigate the coupling should be based on reducing the impedance of avoid the impedance. Three ways to mitigate this SSN coupling including 1) adding anti-via (shorting via) near the initial via; 2) reducing overall parallel plane impedance; 3) adding capacitor the reduce the parallel plane impedance near the location of the via are investigated. Finally, the effect of the three ways above are simulated and compared with the structures without these three improvements.

    ABSTRACT: Oxygen mixed with SO2 can function as a powerful oxidant in acid solution. This paper summarises basic studies on the mechanism of SO2/O2 oxidation, the kinetics of oxidation in acidic media, and potential applications in hydrometallurgy. The SO2/O2 system readily oxidises Fe(II) to Fe(III) and provides a simple method of regenerating Fe(III) for leaching minerals like Cu2S or U3O8. It also oxidises As(III), which in the presence of iron(III) enables a stable ferric arsenate compound to be precipitated. A method for the leaching and removal of arsenic from smelter fumes is proposed. Oxidation of Mn(II) to Mn(III)/Mn(IV) oxides by SO2/O2 allows manganese impurity to be removed from leach liquors and electrolytes.
