Book Description

Praise for Noise Reduction Techniques IN electronic systems

"Henry Ott has literally 'written the book' on the subject of EMC. . . . He not only knows the subject, but has the rare ability to communicate that knowledge to others."
EE Times

Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering is a completely revised, expanded, and updated version of Henry Ott's popular book Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems. It reflects the most recent developments in the field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and noise reduction¿and their practical applications to the design of analog and digital circuits in computer, home entertainment, medical, telecom, industrial process control, and automotive equipment, as well as military and aerospace systems.

While maintaining and updating the core information—such as cabling, grounding, filtering, shielding, digital circuit grounding and layout, and ESD—that made the previous book such a wide success, this new book includes additional coverage of:

  • Equipment/systems grounding

  • 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 partial inductance, and the ten most common EMC problems

The concepts presented are applicable to analog and digital circuits operating from below audio frequencies to those in the GHz range. Throughout the book, an emphasis is placed on cost-effective EMC designs, with the amount and complexity of mathematics kept to the strictest minimum.

Complemented with over 250 problems with answers, Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering equips readers with the knowledge needed to design electronic equipment that is compatible with the electromagnetic environment and compliant with national and international EMC regulations. It is an essential resource for practicing engineers who face EMC and regulatory compliance issues and an ideal textbook for EE courses at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels.

Editorial Reviews

Review
"This is an outstanding book. At 872 pages thick, it is a valuable follow-up to Ott's earlier books, Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems (first edition, 1975; second edition, 1987) . . . EMC will remain with us in the foreseeable future, and we need books like this one." (The Radio Science Bulletin, 1 June 2011)

5EMC - the practiacl approach
By Raguzin Kirill
The book is a very nice introduction to EMC problems for an engineer. It is very easy to read and understand. It relies on a significantly simplified theory of curcuits while considering external factors and properties as a parasitic circuit elements so don't expect precise values here, but the idea is very intuitive for engineers because electronic circuits is pretty much all practical electronics design is about. An other good thing is that every chapter pretty much ends up by a couple of simple facts giving you an understanding of what to do to prevent the descriped group of issues. That is apposed to many other EMC-related books that may require a couple of hours of thinking and doing some math to start to understand what is going on.

If you just start to build electronic stuff, this is pretty much the EMC-book to read. If you have experience in electronics design, many things in the book may seem trivial but the book is quite a big one so most likely there will be something new to learn and it is entertaining to read anyway.

5Excellent Self Study
By Alanna C.
I have been working in the EMC area for roughly a year now, and I found myself wanting to understand the "why" of what the various Standards represent - applying a standard is one thing, but knowing why you are doing what you are creates opportunity to troubleshoot faster but also involves personal growth in a field of unique demand (aka leverage). Also - I thought it was easy to read. I have a background in antenna theory and electromagnetics, and have been performing EMC testing on equipment - which I believe made this a very straight forward read - but if you don't have that background - that's okay! There is Part 2 in the book that takes the time to explain the theory (in a straight forward manner) so that a with general interest/knowledge can also gain something from the conversations.

5Excellent Text!
By Rob D
I ordered this book for the PCB Stack-up detail alone, and have found this to be an excellent reference for countless additional topics related to EMI. This is obviously an area that most engineers and technicians fail to comprehend, and it explains why compliance facilities profit so immensely. I consider Henry Ott to be the authoritative expert in this broad field, and he conveys it in easily understandable means. I would highly recommend this book to any one working with the design, layout, or compliance of printed circuit boards.
