Even an advanced designer will benefit from this book, although you, like me, won't necessarily want to read all of it. It is sufficient to pick and choose areas of particular interest. The less advanced designer would clearly benefit more and the book would therefore represent better value for them. Given a choice between this one and Morrison's Grounding and Shielding Techniques in Instrumentation, pick this one. This one is more technically accurate and useful.
For instance, instead of saying "in order to get the most noise reduction, you need to use a shielded cable only grounded on one end", he says "a shielded cable grounded on one end has 84dB of attenuation to magnetic noise and much more for electric, while if the shield is grounded at both ends the attenuation is more like 36dB".
Those numbers are critical if you're trying to balance signal quality with cost.
One of the best textbooks I've ever purchased.
For packaging engineers like myself, this book is not worth the money. You would be better off buying Blackwell's "The Electronic Packaging Handbook" which has an excellent chapter covering all important aspects of EMC. For Electrical Engineers I suspect what you have in your "High Speed Digital Design" (Johnson and Graham) will be more than adequate.
The real issue is simply too much information. I agree with Ott that some understanding of antennas is needed to understand EMC but not nearly the amount covered in this book. I think that Ott's ham radio hobby has caused him to overdo that material in this book.
I highly recommend taking the course but I suspect if you buy the book you won't finish reading it.
Depite this book has a lot of years, the basic principles have not changed and I find this book very instructive to learn things as types of noise, crosstalk, radiation, grounding and shielding techniques or cabling. Henry W. Ott and his book, are a reference in the world about noise control and EMC concepts.
Written in easy way to understand, with very little equations, I suggest that if you want to have a copy of one of the most famous books on this science, buy it
BOOK: ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY ENGINEERING
EMC topics are so complex that an expert is an expert because it acquires a high degree of specialization in a particular area of this science. This is the case with Mr. Ott, which I and many other people consider the world's number one expert in noise control in electronic circuits. He has a great ability as a communicator. I encounter fascinating his new book, it has given all the issues clearly. The book is well organized, easy to read and understand and you can jump from one chapter to another without losing any information. I highly recommend this book to all the people who want to learn more about this exciting science.
