Tim Williams worked for a variety of companies as an electronic design engineer, before startinghis own consultancy specializing in EMC design and test advice and training. He has monitored the progress of the EMC Directive and its associated standards since it was first made public, over the last 25 years.
"Henry Ott has literally 'written the book' on the subject ofEMC. . . . He not only knows the subject, but has the rare abilityto communicate that knowledge to others."
Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering is a completelyrevised, expanded, and updated version of Henry Ott's popular bookNoise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems. It reflects themost recent developments in the field of electromagneticcompatibility (EMC) and noise reduction¿and their practicalapplications to the design of analog and digital circuits incomputer, home entertainment, medical, telecom, industrial processcontrol, and automotive equipment, as well as military andaerospace systems.
While maintaining and updating the core information—suchas cabling, grounding, filtering, shielding, digital circuitgrounding and layout, and ESD—that made the previous booksuch a wide success, this new book includes additional coverageof:
Switching power supplies and variable-speed motor drives
Digital circuit power distribution and decoupling
PCB layout and stack-up
Mixed-signal PCB layout
RF and transient immunity
Power line disturbances
Precompliance EMC measurements
New appendices on dipole antennae, the theory of partialinductance, and the ten most common EMC problems
The concepts presented are applicable to analog and digitalcircuits operating from below audio frequencies to those in the GHzrange. Throughout the book, an emphasis is placed on cost-effectiveEMC designs, with the amount and complexity of mathematics kept tothe strictest minimum.
Complemented with over 250 problems with answers,Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering equips readerswith the knowledge needed to design electronic equipment that iscompatible with the electromagnetic environment and compliant withnational and international EMC regulations. It is an essentialresource for practicing engineers who face EMC and regulatorycompliance issues and an ideal textbook for EE courses at theadvanced undergraduate and graduate levels.

Positioning for Professionals shows how awell-defined value proposition can help professional service firmscreate their own success instead of copying the success of others,including such concepts as:How and why professional service brands become homogenizedWhy standing for everything is the same as standing fornothingWhy there’s no such thing as full serviceDeep and narrow as a strategic imperativeWhy it’s better to be a profit leader than a marketleaderDifferentiation and price premiumsHow to map your brand on the matrix of relevance anddifferentiationHow to define a value proposition that will make your firmintensely appealing to the customers who want you for what you dobest
Based on the proven premise that the most profitable businessstrategy is not to aim at the center of the market, but rather atthe edges, Positioning for Professionals is written forleaders, managers, and other senior executives of service companiesin with a particular emphasis on professional service firms.
