We live in an age of electronic interconnectivity, with co-workers across the hall and across the ocean, and managing meetings can be a challenge across multiple time zones and cultures. This makes documenting your projects more important than ever. In Technical Documentation and Process, Jerry Whitaker and Bob Mancini provide the background and structure to help you document your projects more effectively. With more than 60 years of combined experience in successfully documenting complex engineering projects, the authors guide you in developing appropriate process and documentation tools that address the particular needs of your organization. Features Strategies for documenting a project, p...
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.
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...
* 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
This book deals with the prominent aspects of this process for any electronic design, including a thorough treatment of computer-aided analysis emphasizing MATLAB. Most modern signal analyses make use of computer-aided analysis in one form or other, including peak detection, time base measurement, Fourier analysis, and display. While most sections concentrate on distortion mechanisms and analysis, other sections present extensive tables and data of properties of materials, frequency bands and assignments, international standards and constants, conversion factors, general mathematics, and abbreviations of communications terms.The application of the varied technologies and disciplines addressed by these articles can bring about truly stunning results. Signal Measurement, Analysis, and Testing makes it simple for engineers to find the information and data they need to create the complex systems of both today and tomorrow.
Transient disturbances are what headaches are made of. Whatever you call them-spikes, surges, or power bumps-they can take your equipment down and leave you with a complicated and expensive repair job. Protection against transient disturbances is a science that demands attention to detail. This book explains how the power distribution system works, what can go wrong with it, and how to protect your facility against abnormalities. System grounding and shielding are covered in detail. Each major method of transient protection is analyzed and its relative merits discussed. The book provides a complete look at the critical elements of the AC power system.
This guide details the new standards encompassed by DTV. Broadcast and video engineers find coverage of transmission and reception hardware, operating principles of the forthcoming U.S. video transmission/interchange format, attributes of video images that allow signal prediction and video compression technology.
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:
