for non-photorealistic rendering.
The EMC118X family employs frequency-hopping on the sampling frequency, which avoids the injection of coherent noise
and enables traces of up to 8 inches while maintaining accurate temperature readings.
Frequency spectra and signal-to-noise (S/N) ratios were analysed for a number of combinations of sources and surfaces as well as properties of source generated coherent noise
