Vanishing Point Article Description: Evaluation Engineering Magazine (Jan 2007) article introduces EMC shielding issues for very small devices.
Estimating Emissions From Your Printed Circuit Board Article Description: A nice, straightforward tutorial (published in the March 2007 issue of Evaluation Engineering magazine) discussing the basics of estimating and controlling EMI on your PCB design.
Smart Design Practices Address EMI/EMC Challenges Article Description: This article from the June 2007 edition of Microwave Journal argues that "treating EMC as a design issue rather than a test and measurement issue" will ultimately save development time. The article touches on use SPICE, IBIS models and 3D simulation, and offers practical advice on how to improve the EMC performance of your design.

FETBench web applets for device, application & thermal analysis Description: Fairchild Semiconductor offers several web-based tools The Device & Application applets are really just glorified tools for selecting devices from Fairchild's offerings. But their thermal analysis (for PC boards) tool is both fun and instructive.
Magic VLSI Layout Description: The Open Circuit Design website states: "Magic is a venerable VLSI layout tool, written in the 1980's at Berkeley by John Ousterhout, now famous primarily for writing the scripting interpreter language Tcl. Due largely in part to its liberal Berkeley open-source license, magic has remained popular with universities and small companies. The open-source license has allowed VLSI engineers with a bent toward programming to implement clever ideas and help magic stay abreast of fabrication technology. However, it is the well thought-out core algorithms which lend to magic the greatest part of its popularity. Magic is widely cited as being the easiest tool to use for circuit layout, even for people who ultimately rely on commercial tools for their product design flow. "
ThermaSim Thermal Simulation Description: The Vishay website states: "ThermaSim is an online thermal simulation tool, result of the partnership between Vishay and Epsilon Ingenierie. ThermaSim is powered by Epsilon Ingenierie and use the REBECA-3D computational software as a web service.

The objective of this web thermal application is to select and evaluate Vishay MOSFETs to test the thermal performance of each component in their final environment. This web tool proposes a detailed 3D thermal analysis using BEM computational method associated to a detailed components models library."
