Overview

*Covers topics using conceptual explanations and over 150 lucid figures, in place of complex mathematics
• Demystifies antennas, waveguides, and transmission line phenomena
• Provides the foundation necessary to thoroughly understand signal integrity issues associated with high-speed digital design

Written for engineers by an engineer, Electromagnetics Explained will teach you everything you need to know about RF/high-speed design and electromagnetic fields. Learn hands-on, practical solutions to EMI/EMC that you can apply immediately to your projects and products. Incorporating practical viewpoints substituted for mathematical theory, this book is accessible to technologists and technicians in addition to engineers, demystifying topics often considered "black magic". Through straight-forward analogies and interesting examples ranging from lightning to electric guitars, the author provides an explanation of electromagnetic fields that is not only practical and informative, but also fascinating and exciting. Even readers with no background in electromagnetics will gain a deep and intuitive knowledge of the subject.

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The extensive background knowledge revealed in this book will help any EMC professional better understand, and better cope with, a diverse array of electromagnetic phenomena in modern computers". - Howard Johnson, author of "High-Speed Digital Design: A Handbook of Black Magic"

Many engineers face a large gap between the elegant simplicity of Maxwell's equations and the practical aspects of electromagnetic issues. Electromagnetics Explained by Ron Schmitt bridges that chasm, starting with basics and fundamentals and then smoothly moving to electromagnetic fields; radiated waves; nonideal components; transmission lines; shielding; s-parameters; antennas; electromagnetic-compatibility issues; and advanced topics, such as lenses, dish and antenna arrays, diffraction, and frequency dependence of materials. - EDN

It uses equations when necessary and also uses a straightforward, nonacademic style to provide readers with an intuitive grasp of the issues. The numerous drawings illuminate the points of the text, such as field patterns, current flows, and component models, and add to the readability of this book. Each chapter also has extensive references. - EDN

The author pulled together a bunch of concepts in electromagnetics, and related them to real world problems. We found it a very refreshing (and useful) approach. Easy to read with lots of good stuff. - Kimmel & Gerke Associates' newsletter, EMI GURU

Despite the hi-tech sound of the topics covered, this book contains very little math, and approaches its topics mostly from an intuitive point of view. The author obviously understands his subject very well, and considers his job to be making that subject as easy to understand as possible in a brief survey of the field. He does that job well.
—Monitoring Times, March 2003

Electromagnetics Explained presents a good blend of concepts and applications without requiring the user to work through advanced math.

    I have my BSEE and MSEE degrees and this book is without a doubt

    I have my BSEE and MSEE degrees and this book is without a doubt the best overall in explaining the behavior of the sciences of electrostatics, all the way through to electromagnetics.
    Where was this book when I was spending countless hours, re-doing homework problems, re-reading countless textbooks in order to understand the materials presented to me
    throughout my academic career.  I totally enjoyed reading this book and will treasure it with my other favorite books.

    Wow, why didn't someone write a book like this before!  Most engineering textbooks are written by professors to impress their peers, not so much for their students to UNDERSTAND the science behind the theories being presented.  
    This book should be a requirement to read during the freshman year of any electrical engineering program.
    Well Done!!  Excellent Job!!

    Excellent Intuitive Approach

    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 waveguides to antennas in a way that almost anybody can understand. After all the graduate level electromagnetics courses I took learning about TM modes, sperical Bessel functions, and countless other stuff I've forgotten, I still never felt like 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 was being taught. 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.
