With tighter regulation of electromagnetic emissions, the electronics industry is increasingly looking for professionals with a solid understanding of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
The IEEE also encourages engineering schools to include EMC as a course topic. In response to this rising need and demand, the authors have developed a textbook based on their extensive experience in teaching and measurements for EMC compliance.
This textbook skillfully integrates the fundamentals of fields and waves, transmission lines and antennas, and examples in applied electromagnetics, along with a variety of other topics essential to the understanding of EMC. Presentations of electromagnetics are given in the context of EMC; discussions of EMC itself are tailored to assist in analysis and design, as well as planning of measurements for EMC compliance.
Chapter 1 introduces readers to electromagnetic interference and describes the evolution of EMC in the digital electronics era. Following, the authors build on basic concepts and demonstrate their application to the design of electronic devices that perform compatibly in given electromagnetic environments. Topics covered provide a mix of theory and practical problem solving:
- The Electromagnetic Environment
- Fundamentals of Fields and Waves
- Signal Waveform and Spectral Analysis
- Transmission Lines
- Antennas and Radiation
- Behavior of Circuit Components
- Radiated Emissions and Susceptibility
- Electromagnetic Shielding
- Coupling Between Devices
- Electrostatic Discharge
- EMC Standards
- Measurement of Emissions
Most chapters conclude with problem sets that test readers′ knowledge and ensure that they have mastered the key concepts. References provided with each chapter enable readers to explore specific topics in greater depth.
This textbook is recommended for senior undergraduate and graduate courses. Additionally, it is an excellent reference for basic electromagnetics and EMC.
