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.See all Product Description

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.
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.
Can't complain, so I won't

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.
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.
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.
