"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.
Recognizing its methodic, step-by-step attack of theelectrostatic discharge (ESD) problem, the initial release of thisbook was quoted by specialists as "the most thorough and concisetreatment of the broad ESD continuum that is available." Now in itsThird Edition, this book delivers the same trusted coverageof the topic while also incorporating recent technological advancesthat have taken place in the engineering community. The book beginswith the basics of ESD for humans and objects, and goes on tocover:
Effects of ESD coupled to electronics
Principal ESD specifications
ESD diagnostics and testing
Design for ESD immunity
To help with troubleshooting, many ESD case histories are givenalong with their successful fixes. Electrostatic Dischargeis essential reading for all designers who want to avoid componentfailures, no trouble found incidents, and random errors.
