This paper presents a new type of electromagnetic interference (EMI) measurement system. An EMI Camera LSI (EMcam) with a 124 on-chip 25050 µm2 loop antenna matrix in 65 nm CMOS is developed. EMcam achieves both the 2D electric scanning and 60 µm-level spatial precision. The down-conversion architecture increases the bandwidth of EMcam and enables the measurement of EMI spectrum up to 3.3 GHz. The shared IF-block scheme is proposed to relax both the increase of power and area penalty, which are inherent issues of the matrix measurement. The power and the area are reduced by 74% and 73%, respectively. EMI measurement with the smallest 3212 µm2 antenna to date is also demonstrated.
