Proper design of printed circuit boards can make the difference between a product passing emissions requirements during the first cycle or not. Traditional EMC design practices have been simply rule-based, that is, a list of rules-of-thumb are presented to the board designers to implement. When a particular rule-of-thumb is difficult to implement, it is often ignored. After the product is built, it will often fail emission requirements and various time consuming and costly add-ons are then required. Proper EMC design does not require advanced degrees from universities, nor does it require strenuous mathematics. It does require a basic understanding of the underlying principles of the potential causes of EMC emissions. With this basic understanding, circuit board designers can make trade-off decisions during the design phase to ensure optimum EMC design. Consideration of these potential sources will allow the design to pass the emissions requirements the first time in the test laboratory. A number of other books have been published on EMC. Most are general books on EMC and do not focus on printed circuit board is intended to help EMC engineers and design design. This book engineers understand the potential sources of emissions and how to reduce, control, or eliminate these sources. This book is intended to be a 'hands-on' book, that is, designers should be able to apply the concepts in this book directly to their designs in the real-world.

Review Text

This book emphasizes understanding basic concepts of controlling the currents on printed circuit boards (pcb's), and provides a wealth of insightful information detailing the possible sources of emissions. Numerous
design strategies are presented to help readers understand how to produce, control and eliminate emission sources. Additional highlights include the following: -Information explaining how to design pcb's to pass EMC
Requirements the first time! -Controlling intentional and unintentional currents at their source; -Decoupling strategies explained and myths exposed; -Proper I/O filter design and connection strategy explained; -Not simply
a list of do's and don't's....but an explanation of "why" things work as they do; -"Ground is a place where potatoes and carrots grow!" -Basic shielding design considerations for PCBs included, and more. This 'hands-on' book
will help designers understand "why" or "why not" to implement a specific design practice.
