366pp, including index. 1988 2nd Edition. Very lightly sunned spine, contents clean, bright and tightly bound.The text presents a comprehensive account of the properties of modern magnetically-soft ferrites, a class of magnetic oxide (ceramic) material which finds a wide application in electronics equipment. The theory and practice of utilizing these ferrites as cores for wound components such as inductors and transformers is illustrated with numerous graphs and tables. All design procedures are supported by worked examples.;For this second edition, all chapters have been revised to bring them into line with current practice and to relate them to currently available ferrite materials and cores. Ferrites have become firmly established as one of the most important classes of present day magnetic materials and are widely used in linear, digital and microwave branches of electrical engineering. Of these applications, those in the digital and microwave fields are rather well served by the literature, whereas it appears that hitherto there has been no textbook specifically devoted to the properties and applications of the largest and most established group of ferrites, i.e. those having high permeability and low losses. It is to remedy this deficiency that this book has been written. It is concerned with the technically important properties of magnetically soft ferrites at frequencies up to about 100 MHz, and the applications of these ferrites to inductors, transformers and related devices. It is primarily intended for electrical engineers and physicists whose work involves design or development using these ferrites. Thus the treatment of each aspect of the subject is direct and functional. But it is not superficial; adequate detail and analysis is given where it is relevant to the main purpose. Data, theoretical relations, and design or selection procedures have been given in the most accessible and useful forms. Wherever possible the labour of design or selection has been minimized by the computation of the functions involved and the presentation of the results in tabular or graphical form.
