At the heart of the heating are two physical phenomena: the skin effect and the method of direct, discrete conversion of radiated electromagnetic energy into heat.
In some published literature regarding proximity effect, such as IEC 60278-2002 (also, see the references cited in Chapter 1of this IEC standard), the proximity effect is separated from skin effect.
This class will discuss the issues of skin effect, proximity and dielectric loss on transmission characteristics.
This "Curie point" temperature is when the skin effect begins to decrease, again permitting the current back into the conductive core of the heater and repeating the cycle.
If we are well into the skin effect region, there may be a significant difference in the resistance that the signal "sees" as it passes through the structure.
It describes skin effect and proximity effect in detail to provide you with a sound understanding of high-frequency phenomena.
Skin effect is the tendency of high-frequency current to concentrate near the outer edge, or surface, of a conductor, instead of flowing uniformly over the entire cross-sectional area of the conductor.
Momentum can simulate complex EM effects including skin effect, substrate effect, thick metals and multiple dielectrics.
Skin effect forces current to travel through smaller cross-sections and rapidly increases the loss and resistance with frequency.
FlexEQ adaptive equalization technology allows the system designer to compensate for multiple impairments in the signal path, such as connectors and cabling or skin effect and dielectric losses in PCB traces.
Conductive loss is directly proportional to the surface resistance though the skin effect, as signals travel at the conductor surface at different depths.
