In this paper the validation of a hybrid method for the prediction of Radiated Emissions (RE) from a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) with an attached cable is presented. The evaluation of Differential Mode radiated field, based on dyadic Green’s functions of the actual PCB medium, takes into account the effects of dielectric layers. The prediction of Common Mode field radiated from the cable is based on a Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) solver.

The validation is made applying the hybrid method to a simple PCB; the comparison between simulations and measurements shows a good tradeoff between accuracy of results and computation time.
