Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems


Noise Reduction Techniques"Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems,"2nd Edition, by Henry W. Ott, publisher: John Wiley & Sons, 1988, ISBN#: 0-471-85068-3.

Now updated to include new information on noise emission from digital electronic systems.  Here is the most complete source available on the theory and practice of reducing emission and susceptibility in electronic systems. Included are low-cost techniques for assuring electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in consumer products, plus how to reduce the susceptibility of electronic systems to electrostatic discharge.

This latest edition of "The Bible on EMC" includes three new chapters on noise and radiation from digital systems and electrostatic discharge.  Additional topics include cabling, grounding, balancing and filtering, passive components, shielding, contact protection, and others. The book contains twelve chapters and six appendices, 426 pages.

The first edition of the book was translated into Japanese, Russian, Bulgarian, and Polish.  The second edition has been translated into Italian, Japanese, and Chinese.

Translations for "Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems"

 "The best inexpensive way to reliably achieve compliance [with EMC requirements] is to have every engineer  on the project electronic, and mechanical read Henry Ott's EMC book and be careful, then take the prototype widget to a competent EMC test lab."
