The six EMC programs in the Westbay range provide a wealth of assistance in designing for emc (electromagnetic compatibility), and for understanding what is happening when things go wrong. Here’s an overview of what each program does; click on the title for more detailed information.
Westbay AuditorTM: this program takes a unique approach to the review of the design of an enclosure in terms of its anticipated emc performance. Enclosure design is often a mechanical engineering oriented task, yet details of openings in panels, or how interfaces between metal faces are treated, have a significant effect on the leakage of electromagnetic radiation. Westbay Auditor assists the enclosure designer by taking details of the enclosure and its details, and performing a detailed review, or audit, of each feature and its possible affect on emc performance.
Westbay Auditor Lite can be downloaded free of charge!
Westbay ToolsTM: gathers together an essential range of analyses on topics in shielding, pcb design, periodic waves, and transient waveforms. Spot calculations are provided at single frequencies or time intervals, and swept calculations may be displayed graphically over a wide frequency range.

Westbay CompufiltTM: This program concentrates on emi suppression filters, enabling insertion loss versus frequency plots to be made for a range of standard feedthrough, pcb and mains style filters. All real effects are taken into account, including non 50 ohm systems, parasitic inductance and capacitance, inductor core changes with frequency, and ferrite high frequency characteristics. Filter values can also be achieved from a set of required insertion loss points.
New in Version 2: Pulse and transient modelling with a range of pulse shapes; range of source and load circuits; phase and input and output impedance plots; Search Wizard; built-in Web Browser with Filter Manufacturer's URL Database, and more!
Westbay Compufilt Lite can be downloaded, allowing unrestricted feedthrough capacitor modelling, and access to all other filter models.
Westbay EMC Assistant: provides a series of 113 slides on the pc screen to guide the mechanical designer in those aspects of electromagnetic compatibility which are affected by the design of the enclosure. Each page is indexed with key words to rapidly find a relevant page on aperture leakage for example, whilst the entire sequence is arranged to be viewed as a single course if required.

Graphical output includes spectral plots of Fourier Harmonics, and time domain plots of waveforms reconstituted from harmonics. Frequency domain modifications can be made by a comprehensive set of filters, or by a set of Non-Linear Characteristics.
