Radiation mechanism and reduction measures have been studied using test large scale integrated (LSI) circuits. The LSI operation mode that simultaneously drives external traces radiates the greatest amount of emissions. In this mode, an LSI-mounted areas has been found to behave as an opening from the electromagnetic viewpoint. Two approaches under consideration, ferrite on the LSI package and a copper sheet covering the LSI package, were verified to reduce emissions very effectively.
