Scope: This major reference book is aimed at engineers and technical managers concerned with EMC (electromagnetic compatibility). It explains why EMC testing is necessary, what standards must be met, how such testing is carried out (and therefore how to prepare for it), what accuracy and repeatability can be expected, and when to test. For less than the cost of half a day's testing in a laboratory, with this book manufacturers of equipment can prepare for and interact with test houses on the basis of sound knowledge; thereby reducing the time and expense incurred prior to EMC approval.
Engineers and technical managers in electronics and manufacturing industry; Physicists and measurement (metrology) specialists.
