Product Description

Review

Providing a comprehensive and practical understanding of electromagnetic fields and the principles necessary for circuit design at RF, this book is a helpful resource for analog and digital engineers alike. -Poptronics

From the Publisher

Based on familiar circuit theory and basic physics, this book serves as an invaluable reference for both analog and digital engineers alike. For those who work with analog RF, this book is a must-have resource. With computers and networking equipment of the 21st century running at such high frequencies, it is now crucial for digital designers to understand electromagnetic fields, radiation and transmission lines. This knowledge is necessary for maintaining signal integrity and achieving EMC compliance. Since many digital designers are lacking in analog design skills, let alone electromagnetics, an easy-to-read but informative book on electromagnetic topics should be considered a welcome addition to their professional libraries.

By A Customer on 10 Dec. 2002
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the BEST engineering books I've ever bought. It describes in clear and simple terms, electromagnetic phenomena and the implications on RF/wireless and high-speed electronics. It contains all the practical information that experienced designers know but is somehow not present in textbooks. It has certainly put all the bits and pieces of information that I've gathered in the course of my PhD into context. It throws out all complicated math (but essential equations are included) but manages to get the same message across. Very highly recommended for RF/high-speed designers and a great reference on electromagnetics.

I totally agree with the previous review, this is one of the finest engineering books in my library, and great value for money.

As an Electronics Engineer who has been working with sub 100MHz digital systems for some years I found that I had forgotten the physics behind what I do. Circuit theory and a few EMC "rules of thumb" had been getting me by just fine.

Now that I work with GHz digital and RF analogue I need to understand what is REALLY going on. This book has filled that gap and refreshed my knowledge extremely well. If you've come into electronics from any route other than a physics degree you simply must have this book.

Often engineering books can be a little blinkered, this is not necessarily a bad thing but from time to time principles cross paths and it would be nice to step back and take a wider view. This book is very good in that it not only looks directly at the issues at hand but also looks at some of the fundamental principles behind the topic. You might not think that understanding the Coriolis force to be relevant to electromagnetism, but read on suddenly a bigger picture develops before your eyes.

The book explores the macrocosm and it relevance to the main topic and is all the more interesting and useful for it. I recommend this to any student of electrodynamics as a very useful reference.

The content was not quite what I hoped for but that is hardly the authors, or the sellers fault. The book was in good condition, delivered on time.
Can't complain, so I won't

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intuitive Approach 17 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Electromagnetics texts almost always get so bogged down in complicated mathematics right from the start, that the reader quickly loses all intuitive feel for the subject matter and any real understanding for what's going on.
This book is different!! Finally, somebody has written a book which explains electromagnets from electrostatics to antennas to waveguides in a way that almost anybody can understand. After all the graduate level electromagnetics courses I took learning about TM modes and sperical Bessel functions, I still couldn't claim that I understood much about electomagnetics - until I read this book. Suddenly all kinds of puzzle pieces are fitting together. I only wish I had been able to read it before I ever took any of those classes. I certainly would have had a much better understanding of and appreciation for what I was learning.
I would recommend this book for any electrical engineer or technician, as well as any non-electrical engineer who wants to understand the basics of electromagnetics. If I was an emags professor, I would definitely make this required reading before I ever put a piece of chalk to the board!
Bravo, Mr. Schmitt! Your matter-of-fact writing style and useful every-day analogies have given me a much better understanding of this otherwise enigmatic subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars An accessible treatment of a challanging subject 10 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm a Systems Engineer for a major test and measurement equipment manufacturer and have an MS in Electrical Engineering. Since my job responsibilities have begun to move into the area of wireless, I have been looking for a "intro/refresher" on electromagnetics. One of the problems I've had is that books on this subject are either too math-intensive (filled with triple integrals, etc.), not technical enough, or pure theory (with no hints as to how I might actually USE this information)
This book, on the other hand, strikes a rare balance between these extremes. It's rigorous enough technically, but also does something very few books do -- it explains the WHY and the HOW as well. There is a lot of practical advice on how to apply the material in this book as well.
This book has been very useful to me both as background knowledge as well as in solving some very real problems (e.g. in antenna design/analysis).
I buy well over 50 technical books a year, and this is by far one of (if not the) best. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Highly Recommend ThisBook 11 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book helped me gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for electromagnetic (EM) theory. The book not only answered many of my questions on the subject, but also helped me sort out and solidify my existing knowledge on EM. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially students like myself desiring a real grasp on the subject.
The book does a great job of explaining why high frequency circuits behave so differently than low frequency circuits. I now also have a much better conceptual understanding of magnetism, reactive components, parasitic effects, transmission lines, diffraction, and radiation. I was pleased the author included the Relativity and Quantum Physics chapter, since it helped refresh my memory on those subjects.
Many of my fellow classmates majoring in electrical engineering are totally clueless when it comes to understanding the theory behind EM. To many of them an inductor is nothing more than a little circuit symbol and equation. To many of them permittivity and permeability are just numbers. To many of them EM waves arise solely because of a fancy vector identity applied to Maxwell's Equations. I truly hope they find this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best practical references in the area of EM 23 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Initially, I only wanted to check out something from the EMC chapter of the book, particularly about high speed PCB design. Then I found that many of my questions not addressed in Stephen Hall's, Montrose's and both of Howard Johnson's texts are illustrated here with proper answers and cures. The author's judicious use of readable equations and insightful pictorial illustrations makes the text amazingly compact yet rich in practical information. If you're serious about quality of your designs, you will love this text.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for everyone 21 Oct. 2003
By ojniemin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have been working with RF and Electromagnetics for a few years and still I think that this book was great reading for me. It is not for those who are satisfied if things are working and they already know the basics, rather it is for those who want to know WHY things happen. I bet most active RF designers would have hard time explaining why all the high frequency tricks are needed and at which frequency these should be used. This book answered many of my simple and 'stupid' questions.
