Or just hire an engineer who gets it and understand EMI

Simulations are highly subject to the old GIGO limitations. Further, the quality of simulation software to date has not been up to accurately predicting complex systems with communications and distributed control schemes involved. The historical approach has been "divide and conquer", estimating the impact of each sub-part of a larger system. Still, such approaches have yielded only several-order-of-magnitude accuracy because of the significant effects of simple arrangement and packaging issues. Until we can get past the "We must be sure it is right the first time, but you cannot develop a circuit or packaging using costly features!" mentality, it is my considered opinion that simulation for EMI/EMC will only expose the efforts of designers that are not meeting the "motherhood and apple pie" design parameters.

EMI simulations will help a lot in reducing the R&D cost and time. The simulation tools for the automotiive industry are in the baby phase and lot more inputs are required from practical live field studies. These are on mobile and their ambience varies in a wide range it is more complicated to predict its nature using simulation alone.

Leonard Nimoy, We'll Miss you
Martin Rowe
Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
