Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility 2nd Edition
This is a landmark text thoroughly updated, including a new CD. As digital devices continue to be produced at increasingly lower costs and with higher speeds, the need for effective electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) design practices has become more critical than ever to avoid unnecessary costs in bringing products into compliance with governmental regulations. The Second Edition of this landmark text has been thoroughly updated and revised to reflect these major developments that affect both academia and the electronics industry. Readers familiar with the First Edition will find much new material, including: Latest U.S. and international regulatory requirements; PSpice used throughout the textbook to simulate EMC analysis solutions; Methods of designing for Signal Integrity; Fortran programs for the simulation of Crosstalk supplied on a CD Or CAD[registered]; and PSpice[registered] Release 10.0 and Version 8 Demo Edition software supplied on a CD. The final chapter on System Design for EMC is completely rewritten. The chapter on Crosstalk is rewritten to simplify the mathematics. Detailed, worked-out examples are now included throughout the text. In addition, review exercises are now included following the discussion of each important topic to help readers assess their grasp of the material. Several appendices are new to this edition including Phasor Analysis of Electric Circuits, The Electromagnetic Field Equations and Waves, Computer Codes for Calculating the Per-Unit-Length Parameters and Crosstalk of Multiconductor Transmission Lines, and a SPICE (PSPICE) tutorial. Now thoroughly updated, the Second Edition of “Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility” remains the textbook of choice for university/college EMC courses as well as a reference for EMC design engineers. An Instructor’s Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.
About the Author
CLAYTON R. PAUL, PHD, is Professor and Sam Nunn Chair of Aerospace Systems Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mercer University. He is also Emeritus Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Kentucky, where he served on the faculty for twenty-seven years. Dr. Paul is the author of twelve textbooks in electrical engineering, has contributed numerous chapters to engineering handbooks and reference texts, and has published numerous technical papers in scientific journals and symposia. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Honorary Life Member of the IEEE EMC Society.
The author emphasizes the physical appreciation of concepts rather than the mere mathematical manipulation of symbols. Avoiding the tendency to treat engineering as a branch of applied mathematics, the text uses mathematics not so much to prove an axiomatic theory as to enhanced physical and intuitive understanding of concepts. Theoretical results are supported by examples and analogies, allowing students to intuitively discover meaning for themselves.
The ultimate practical resource for today’s RF system design professionals Radio frequency components and circuits form the backbone of today’s mobile and satellite communications networks. Consequently, both practicing and aspiring industry professionals need to be able to solve ever more complex problems of RF design. Blending theoretical rigor with a wealth of practical expertise, Practical RF System Design addresses a variety of complex, real-world problems that system engineers are likely to encounter in today’s burgeoning communications industry with solutions that are not easily available in the existing literature. The author, an expert in the field of RF module and system design, provides powerful techniques for analyzing real RF systems, with emphasis on some that are currently not well understood. Combining theoretical results and models with examples, he challenges readers to address such practical issues as: How standing wave ratio affects system gain How noise on a local oscillator will affect receiver noise figure and desensitization How to determine the dynamic range of a cascade from module specifications How phase noise affects system performance and where it comes from How intermodulation products (IMs) predictably change with signal amplitude, and why they sometimes change differently An essential resource for today’s RF system engineers, the text covers important topics in the areas of system noise and nonlinearity, frequency conversion, and phase noise. Along with a wealth of practical examples using MATLAB(r) and Excel, spreadsheets are available for download from an FTP Web site to help readers apply the methods outlined in this important resource.
SUPERCHARGE your understanding of ELECTRONICS
Learn electronics without getting your wires crossed! Electronics Demystified, Second Edition teaches you fundamental concepts and applications step by step.
This practical guide begins by covering voltage, current, resistance, impedance, admittance, and power supplies. The book goes on to discuss semiconductor diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, and signal amplifiers and oscillators. Wireless electronics is then addressed, including radio-frequency transmitters and receivers, telecommunications, and antennas. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key topics.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s law
- Current and voltage in RL and RC circuits
- Oscillation and amplification
- Bipolar and field-effect transistors
- Radio-wave propagation
- Receiver and transmitter design
- Communications satellites and antennas
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electronics Demystified, Second Edition helps you master this essential subject.
