This accessible, new reference work shows how and why RF energy iscreated within a printed circuit board and the manner in whichpropagation occurs. With lucid explanations, this book enablesengineers to grasp both the fundamentals of EMC theory and signalintegrity and the mitigation process needed to prevent an EMCevent. Author Montrose also shows the relationship between time andfrequency domains to help you meet mandatory compliancerequirements placed on printed circuit boards.

Using real-world examples the book features:

Clear discussions, without complex mathematical analysis, offlux minimization concepts Extensive analysis of capacitor usage for variousapplications Detailed examination of components characteristics with variousgrounding methodologies, including implementation techniques An in-depth study of transmission line theory A careful look at signal integrity, crosstalk, andtermination

Choice Review

Published as a companion volume to the author's Printed Circuit Board Design Techniques for EMC Compliance (1996), this new work covers all aspects of a printed circuit board (PCB) design as it relates to both time and frequency domain issues of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Intended for engineers and technicians involved in logic design and PCB layout, manufacture, testing, and supervision of the hardware engineering design, chapters offer EMC fundamentals, EMC and the PCB, components and EMC, image planes, bypassing and decoupling, transmission lines, signal integrity and cross talk, trace termination, and grounding. Glossary; supplementary tables on the decibel, Fourier analysis, conversions, and international EMC requirements for standards and tests. Recommended for technical libraries serving researchers and professionals engaged in all aspects of PCB design, production, and testing. I. L. Kosow; emeritus, City University of New York
