Trilogy of Magnetics
The Design Guide “Trilogy of Magnetics” in its 5th edition The design guide for EMI Filter Design and SMPS & RF Design Circuit is completely revised, newly structured, and covers a multitude of new components and applications. The design guide is divided into the following chapters: Basic Principles, Components, and Applications. A keyword index, as well as a formulary, complete the book. The objective of the design guide, “Trilogy of Magentics”, is to practically familiarize customers and users with the characteristics and applications of inductive components. The design guide was published 8 years ago for the first time and is now a standard work for lots of development departments and universities. Over 15,000 copies of the book have been sold in the last 8 years. In the 5th edition, the explanation of old techniques and components has been set aside to have more room for new components and applications. Notably, a multitude of external authors from our customer base and our well-known manufacturers passed on their experiences and solutions in the Basic Principles and Applications section.
The following articles are exemplary highlights:
- Calculation, dimensioning and construction of customer-specific transformers (Do-it- yourself transformer design)
- A transformer’s effect on return loss
- Class-D amplifier
- An introduction to frequency compensation
- Basic principles of Ethernet & Power-over-Ethernet Furthermore, the Trilogy includes over 200 practical examples to the following topics:
- Filter circuits
- Audio circuits
- Video circuits
- Motor control units
- Line filter
- Power supply
