Predicting Fusing Time of Overloaded PCB Traces Can We Predict It At All? with Douglas Brooks and Johannes Adam

When Traces Melt:  Figures 1 and 2 (Note 1) illustrate traces on two different boards. Each figure illustrates the trace at the moment it fuses (melts) due to a significant current overload. The fusing mechanisms are clearly different. So what was different? Here is the first hint. Assume there is a current that is just …

Cryptography 101: From Theory to Practice with Rolf Oppliger

This book provides a comprehensive introduction into cryptography and the current state of the art. It starts with an overview about cryptography as a field of study and the various unkeyed, secret key, and public key cryptosystems that are available, and it then delves more deeply into the technical details of the systems. The goal …

Examining Machine Learning Applications in Electromagnetics and Antenna Array Processing with Manel Martínez-Ramón, Arjun Gupta, José Luis Rojo-Álvarez, and Christos Christodoulou

This book is intended to be a practical guide for students, engineers, and researchers in electromagnetics with minimal background in machine learning.  The book contains 9 chapters and is broken into two main parts.  Part I contains the first five chapters  that cover the theoretical principles of  the most common machine learning architectures and algorithms …

Investigating High-Thoroughput Satellites with Hector Fenech

The satellite communication landscape is evolving. The traditional services are not sustaining the growth that the space industry is used to, and new services are showing new promises. Broadband access is such an area encompassing two main applications, namely fixed broadband and mobile broadband. In these days where economics are becoming the deciding factor in …

PCB Design Guide to Via and Trace Currents and Temperatures Douglas Brooks and Johannes Adam

We have assembled 20-plus years of knowledge into these pages. Starting with a historical background, this book covers: (a) PCB materials (copper and dielectrics) and the role they play in the heating and cooling of traces; (b) The IPC curves found in IPC 2152 along with equations and simulations that fit those curves; (c) Sensitivity …

Exploring Electromagnetic Diffraction Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB with Gökhan Apaydin and Levent Sevgi

Waves, either electromagnetic (EM) or acoustic (AC) interact with objects and scatter. The addition of incident and scattered fields form the total fields. Scattered fields include (but not limited with) reflections, refractions, and diffractions. This book is about diffraction modeling and simulation. Scattering has gained much attention because of the increase of wireless communication in …

Artech House is pleased to announce the publication of two titles in March 2021. High-Throughput Satellites Hector Fenech This exciting new book discusses the motivation for the evolution of a new breed of High Throughput Satellites (HTS) that have emerged from traditional communications satellites. It explores the commercial sectors and technical context that have shaped …

Why You Need This Book: Introduction to OFDM Receiver Design and Simulation with Y.J. Liu

Recently, the OFDM technology has advanced significantly. It has found applications in 5G using concepts such as OFDM-MIMO, Massive MIMO and others. However, OFDM is still the fundamental building block of all these advanced applications. To help the readers get up to speed in stepping into the 5G era, this book entitled “Introduction to OFDM …

Exploring Ultrawideband Short-Pulse Radio Systems with Vladimir I. Koshelev, Victor P. Belichenko, and Yury I. Buyanov

The history of ultrawideband (UWB) radio systems development and application field of short UWB radiation pulses have been considered briefly in the monograph. The main approaches and methods for solving the problems of  electromagnetics of transient processes relating to the radiation, propagation and scattering of UWB pulses on conductive and dielectric objects were described. Impulse …
