The Billion Dollar Mistake:  Changing the Status Quo

May 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

We're excited to have Dan Beeker as the speaker for our first EMC Society meeting of 2024! This meeting is open to all, including non-members, at no charge. Dinner will be provided by Abbott.
Engineering teams worldwide face increasingly difficult challenges in designing electronic products and achieving good signal integrity and compliance. However, the status quo had become to expect the design to fail EMC testing, not just once, but three, four, or as many as five times. Each time the design is sent to be retested, there is little confidence in success. This cycle is expensive in both the time it takes to redesign the product and the cost of expediting fabricating the new PCB and assembly. Add this to the cost of retesting the product, and the numbers add up very quickly. This expense and delay in product certification are not in the budget or the schedule. The expense directly affects the bottom line of the electronic supply company, but also affects the customers waiting for the product. Instead of designing the next big thing, teams are trying to fix the current one. As a result, billions of dollars are lost each year designing products that are expected to fail.
Registration closes 5/12 to allow for pre-printing of visitor badges at the host site.
