Ron Schmitts Electromagnetics Explained: A Handbook
for Wireless/RF, EMC and High Speed Electronics is a guide
and reference for engineers, scientists, technicians who need
to apply the concepts of electromagnetics to real-world problems
in electrical engineering.
Disciplines include radio-frequency design, high speed digital
design, and electromagnetic compatibility. Electromagnetism
is the theory that underlies all of electronics and circuitry.
With circuit theory being only an approximation, many problems,
such as radiation and transmission line effects, require a
working knowledge of electromagnetic concepts. Practical tips
and examples of real applications of electromagnetic concepts
are included to help bridge the gap between theory and practice.

Dual Elastomer RFI Shielding Gaskets
Vanguards catalog shows an increased assortment of coextruded
elastomer shielding gaskets with a unique conductive outer
jacket over a pure elastomer inner core. This yields both
a conductive surface and active inner core with no compromised
electrical or mechanical performance. New cost-effective microbridge
styles and high performance sponge core styles are also available.

EMC Measurement Uncertainty Guide
An engineering guide on measurement uncertainty in EMC tests
has been published by Schaffner EMC Inc. This handy reference
provides a clear, straightforward explanation of how to calculate
and apply measurement uncertainty, and how to minimize it
in the testing procedure.
The EMC Measurement Uncertainty Guide provides the basic concepts
for identifying the relevant contributions to uncertainty,
and the calculation of total uncertainty from these contributions.
It includes sections on emissions uncertainties, conducted
tests, radiated tests, disturbance power, immunity uncertainties,
transients, surges, and harmonics and flicker uncertainties.
This EMC guide also briefly covers the effect of the new CISPR-based
emissions standards document, CISPR 16, CISPR 16-4(3), on
measurement uncertainty and how it must be calculated.
