Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility, Third Edition” is an ideal textbook for every university undergraduate enrolled in an EMC course, for practicing electrical engineers dealing with interference issues or for those wanting to learn more about electromagnetic compatibility to become better product designers. The authors provide a well-written, easily digestible, yet thorough reference that demystifies EMC through the explanation of fundamental theory around spectrum, transmission lines, antennas, radiation, crosstalk and shielding, along with Federal Communications Commission regulations – why they exist and how compliance tests are performed. Included in the appendix is an intro to electrical circuit analysis and lumped-circuit approximate models for transmission lines using tool kits like PSPICE or LTSPICE, which may be used for EMC analysis. Future editions of this text could introduce computational electromagnetics with techniques like MoM, FIT, FEM and tools like HFSS, CST or FEKO and contextualize their use by delineating specific modeling methods appropriate for various analyses. The text culminates with a chapter on systems-level EMC design strategies that elegantly incorporate and synthesize material presented in previous chapters. Most electronic products are designed to achieve metrics related to reliability, accuracy, cost, weight or some combination of these qualities. EMC has traditionally posed a challenge to each of these metrics, especially cost. While this book will not magically solve every EMI issue, in the words of Dr. Paul himself, “Successful EMC design of a product depends on the early and continuous application of the principles outlined in the text.”
