The main goal of this work is to develop a joint computationalexperimental approach to predict, quantify, and prove the coupling of microwaves to any arbitrary collectiongeometry of wirestraceswire-bonds in different surroundings. The computational approach is based on the Characteristic Mode Analysis CMA and the Equivalent Circuit Approach ECA. The developed computational tools are combined into a single user-friendly package named PECNEC Predictive-package for Electromagnetic Coupling to Nonlinear-electronics using Equivalent-circuits and Characteristic-modes. The objective of PECNEC is to predict the waveform that will cause electronic upset, by maximizing the coupled voltage and power, to permutations of linearnon-linear loads in any wire topologygeometry. General guidelines obtained from the computational tools are presented, and future directions to advance PECNEC are also outlined.
