  Grounding and Shielding Techniques A step-by-step guide to solving noise and interference problems in the digital age The rapid growth of digital technology over the past decade has brought the analog world into direct contact with high-speed operations and electromagnetic processes--and created a host of new problems for designers. This new twist requires different approaches to issues of noise and interference in digital processing, high-speed communication, mass data storage, and high-frequency applications. Grounding and Shielding Techniques, Fourth Edition is entirely rewritten to reflect these new challenges. This highly effective tool for the management of interference problems in electronic equipment treats the fundamentals of electrostatics as they relate to electromagnetic phenomena. Specifically, this volume deals with the new interference problems created when analog designs are buried in the middle of hardware that must meet radiation and susceptibility standards. It features: * Effective techniques for handling noise problems in a variety of circumstances * Step-by-step instructions for building noise-free instrument systems * Strategies for reducing or eliminating noise in interconnecting systems * Expanded discussion of multishielded transformers * An overview of current trends to limit the use of transformers * Real-world examples of factors influencing electronic noise * Simplified, practical explanations of the physics of fields * Dozens of illustrations and a clear, readable text. Grounding and Shielding Techniques, Fourth Edition is a state-of-the-art problem-solving guide for electronic design engineers and technicians. It is also an extremely useful text for short courses on electronic noise. More ...
  High Voltage Test Techniques Second Edition The second edition of High Voltage Test Techniques has been completely revised. The present revision takes into account the latest international developments in High Voltage and Measurement technology, making it an essential reference for engineers in the testing field. High Voltage Technology belongs to the traditional area of Electrical Engineering. However, this is not to say that the area has stood still. New insulating materials, computing methods and voltage levels repeatedly pose new problems or open up methods of solution; electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) or components and systems also demand increased attention. The authors hope that their experience will be of use to students of Electrical Engineering confronted with High Voltage problems in their studies, in research and development and also in the testing field.

  IR101 Automatic Infrared IR Thermometer This beauty is one of the neatest thermometers we've ever seen! You can measure the temperature of anything merely by pointing a IR beam of light at it! That's right, no contact, no sensors, no wires, glass, nothing but a beam of IR light! Is your motor running hot? Is your refrigerator cold enough? How cold IS that bottle of soda? If you want to know, just aim and push the button. The temperature is immediately displayed on the backlit LCD display! Last measurement is automatically held and stored until power-off. Measurements can be momentary or continuous, with minimum and maximum temps held during measurement! You can't ask for much more than that in a handheld thermometer that is contact-free besides! How does it work, you ask? Well if you really want to know, when making a temperature measurement the surface radiation of the object to be measured is evaluated using the principle of radiation thermometry. This is a purely passive process, i.e. no radiation is transmitted, but instead, use is made of only the natural electromagnetic radiation energy (heat radiation) that every body above a temperature of absolute zero (-273 °C) has. The temperature can be determined very accurately from this radiation energy if the emission factor of the object being measured is known. We'll stop there, because we only have so much space for all this copy! Runs on 4 LR44 cells (included) for a long life. If you want to know what the temperature is, check it out with the IR101!

  Printed Circuit Board Design Techniques for EMC Compliance : A Handbook for Designers "Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is an engineering discipline often identified as “black magic.” This belief exists because the fundamental mechanisms on how radio frequency (RF) energy is developed within a printed circuit board (PCB) is not well understood by practicing engineers. Rigorous mathematical analysis is not required to design a PCB. Using basic EMC theory and converting complex concepts into simple analogies helps engineers understand the mitigation process that deters EMC events from occurring. This user-friendly reference covers a broad spectrum of information never before published, and is as fluid and comprehensive as the first edition. The simplified approach to PCB design and layout is based on real-life experience, training, and knowledge. Printed Circuit Board Techniques for EMC Compliance, Second Edition will help prevent the emission or reception of unwanted RF energy generated by components and interconnects, thus achieving acceptable levels of EMC for electrical equipment. It prepares one for complying with stringent domestic and international regulatory requirements. Also, it teaches how to solve complex problems with a minimal amount of theory and math. Essential topics discussed include: Introduction to EMC Interconnects and I/O PCB basics Electrostatic discharge protection Bypassing and decoupling Backplanes–Ribbon Cables–Daughter Cards Clock Circuits–Trace Routing–Terminations Miscellaneous design techniques This rules-driven book—formatted for quick access and cross-reference—is ideal for electrical and EMC engineers, consultants, technicians, and PCB designers regardless of experience or educational background."
