Proper operation of sensitive equipment requires attention to transient disturbances, grounding practices, and standby power needs. This second edition of the successful AC Power Systems Handbook focuses on engineering technology essential to the design, maintenance, and operation of alternating current power supplies. What's New in the Second Edition? Expanded discussion on power-system components New chapter on grounding practices Appendix covering engineering data and tables Updated material in all chapters Serving engineering personnel involved in the specification, installation, and maintenance of electronic equipment for industry, this revision comprehensively examines the design and maintenance of ac power systems for critical-use applications. AC Power Systems Handbook also reflects the increased movement toward microelectronic equipment and microprocessor-based systems as well as the increased priority among electronics engineers on the protection of such systems.
* THE industry standard reference for video engineering, completely updated with more than 50% new material * New chapters on video networking and digital television systems in the USA and Europe * CD-ROM contains over 1000 pages of bonus material, linked by icon to relevant sections of the handbook so readers can expand their research
The phrase "high technology" is perhaps one of the more overused descriptions in our technical vocabulary. It is a phrase generally reserved for discussion of integrated circuits, fiber optics, satellite systems, and computers. Few people would associate high technology with vacuum tubes. The notion that vacuum tube construction is more art than science may have been true 10 or 20 years ago, but today it's a different story. The demand on the part of industry for tubes capable of higher operating power and frequency, and the economic necessity for tubes that provide greater efficiency and reliability, have moved power tube manufacturers into the high-tech arena. Advancements in tube design a...
When it comes to electronics, demand grows as technology shrinks. From consumer and industrial markets to military and aerospace applications, the call is for more functionality in smaller and smaller devices. Culled from the second edition of the best-selling Electronics Handbook, Microelectronics, Second Edition presents a summary of the current state of microelectronics and its innovative directions. This book focuses on the materials, devices, and applications of microelectronics technology. It details the IC design process and VLSI circuits, including gate arrays, programmable logic devices and arrays, parasitic capacitance, and transmission line delays. Coverage ranges from thermal pro...
Building upon the extensive resources of Whitaker's The Electronics Handbook, The Resource Handbook of Electronics offers the most complete collection of reference and tabular data available. It provides the data that engineers and technologists need in a clear, concise format that does away with detailed explanations and presents just the facts-the essential tables, charts, formulas, definitions, and equations with just enough detail to accomplish the task at hand. This one-stop reference covers a broad range of technologies, emphasizes practical applications, and provides references to more detailed information on important subjects. Its many topics include:
* Allows users to quickly and easily locate any major standard, document, or protocol on the web * Includes all relevant standards from SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers), CEA (Consumers Electronics Association), AES (Audio Engineers Society), and ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) * Lists complete spectrum frequency assignments for broadcast * CD-ROM contains the entire book in searchable PDF with click-on links to all the major standards and documents listed
The responsibilities of the system engineer are many and varied, especially as they relate to facility design and construction. Successful execution of these responsibilities requires an understanding of the underlying technologies, the applicable quality standards, and the proper methods for achieving them. The Communications Facility Design Handbook is dedicated to providing and supporting that understanding. It examines the tasks and functions of the system engineer and establishes a foundation for designing, installing, operating, and maintaining audio, video, computer, and radio frequency systems and facilities. Unique in its scope and its approach, The Communications Facility Design Handbook describes the important steps required to take a project from basic design to installation and completion. From the fundamental principles of electronics to details on wiring, from budget analysis to safety considerations, this is your one-stop reference for planning, building, renovating, and operating all types of electronics facilities.
