Analysis of Multiconductor Transmission Lines, 2nd EditionISBN: 9780470131541
780 pages
October 2007, WileyIEEE Press

The increasing use of highspeed digital technology requires that all electrical engineers have a working knowledge of transmission lines. However, because of the introduction of computer engineering courses into alreadycrowded fouryear undergraduate programs, the transmission line courses in many electrical engineering programs have been relegated to a senior technical elective, if offered at all.
Now, Analysis of Multiconductor Transmission Lines, Second Edition has been significantly updated and reorganized to fill the need for a structured course on transmission lines in a senior undergraduate or graduatelevel electrical engineering program. In this new edition, each broad analysis topic, e.g., perunitlength parameters, frequencydomain analysis, timedomain analysis, and incident field excitation, now has a chapter concerning twoconductor lines followed immediately by a chapter on MTLs for that topic. This enables instructors to emphasize twoconductor lines or MTLs or both.
In addition to the reorganization of the material, this Second Edition now contains important advancements in analysis methods that have developed since the previous edition, such as methods for achieving signal integrity (SI) in highspeed digital interconnects, the finitedifference, timedomain (FDTD) solution methods, and the timedomain to frequencydomain transformation (TDFD) method. Furthermore, the content of Chapters 8 and 9 on digital signal propagation and signal integrity application has been considerably expanded upon to reflect all of the vital information current and future designers of highspeed digital systems need to know.
Complete with an accompanying FTP site, appendices with descriptions of numerous FORTRAN computer codes that implement all the techniques in the text, and a brief but thorough tutorial on the SPICE/PSPICE circuit analysis program, Analysis of Multiconductor Transmission Lines, Second Edition is an indispensable textbook for students and a valuable resource for industry professionals.
