Electromagnetics Explained: A Handbook for Wireless/RF, EMC, and High-speed Electronics

2 Reviews
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.

  • 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

it gives an intuitive understanding of electromagnetics. It is a must for beginners. but i will also add that.it is very very useful for people with experience, it gives them a good perspective to the subject.
In the book author has achieved all these without using any mathematical equation...not even using maxwell's equation explicitly.For maxwell's equation and mathematics there are lots of book, but this is a gem, this book deserved 5star. it gives the understanding of the phenomena,and gives the reader the vantage to get acquainted with maxwell's equation and its consequences.
the language is very straight forward and simple. actually representation of idea is so lucid that you can read it like a novel. I read almost half of the book in a single sitting. but warn you that it does not deal with maxwell's equation. But electromagnetics cannot be explained more simpler and sufficient manner than this.
I thank the author for such a beautiful book.
