• EMC/EMS Evaluation Platform and Solution Provider

Our Services

API is a EMC solution provider and EMC scanner manufacturer.

API Scan and Test Services:

API has been providing EMC scan services, compliance tests and IC ESD/LU (HBM, MM, CDM) design consulting/test services to major consumer electronics companies over the world. Scan services include recent hot items, like SE (Shielding Effectiveness) evaluation scan over wide frequency ranges, and ESD, EMI, current spreading scans. API's design consulting on HBM, MM, CDM and LU with API's own patented protection structures is regarded as the best way of preventing ESD/LU failures in advance in the industry. API is fully equipped with ESD/LU test services, too.

EMC Scan

SEE: Shielding Effectiveness Evaluation Scan:

API has been providing SEE scans to component supplies of leading hand-held electronics manufacturers. Standard SEE scan procedures and the report format make the shielding effectiveness comparison easier.

EMI Scan:

API is capable of EMI scan on following frequency ranges with API developed probes and software.
● 50 kHz ~ 50 MHz
● 10 MHz ~ 18 GHz
● Over 18 GHz

ESD Scan:

API provides ESD scan to trouble shoot the gun test failures, screen out potentially problematic components or compare effectiveness of ESD failure counter-measure.

Current Spreading Scan:

CS can assist clamping device selection, placement of clamping devices or design verification. Combining CS with ESD scan provides powerful insight about ESD trouble shoot and design revision.

Standard Test:

IEC 61000-4-2 Test:

Various types of disturbances are injected to the DUT, and responses of the DUT to the specific disturbances are observed and recorded at every injection point. The disturbances can be magnetic or electric fields that cause fluctuations in voltages or current in the net, respectively, or direct injection of currents. API's immunity scan technologies provide trouble shooting for ESD failures, screening out problematic components for standard immunity tests and deeper understanding of EMC behavior of the DUT.

IC ESD Design Consulting & Tests:

API has been providing IC ESD (HBM, MM and CDM) and LU design consulting service more than ten years with its own patented protection structures. Design experiences cover high voltage, low power, high speed and foundry cells to keep IC's from IO cells, core circuit or power rail crossing failures. API's design works within foundry design rules.

API is fully equipped with ESD, LU and TLP testers, and has been providing test service for more than ten years in the Silicon Valley.
