This webinar will be an informative discussion between Advanced Compliance Solutions, Inc. VP of Technology, Sam Wismer, and Director of Wireless Certifications, Kirby Munroe.
The session will focus on the drastically changing requirements for wireless devices in Europe that are operating in the 2.4GHz frequency band. Devices including Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Bluetooth, etc. are required to meet EN 300 328, a harmonized product standard under the R&TTE Directive which will experience significant changes in its testing requirements as it transitions from v1.7.1 to v1.8.1 at the end of this year.
Starting with an overview of the standard and then detailing the new technical requirements for the new edition, the webinar will be valuable to those interested in the implications the changes will have on manufacturers and test labs alike.
Who Should Attend: Wireless design engineers, compliance test engineers and product regulatory compliance leaders that work with 2.4 GHz devices such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Zigbee, and any support industries.
VP Technology, ACS
Sam understands the intense pressure manufacturers face and the obstacles they must surmount to bring their products to market; he’s felt it himself. With 12 years of industry experience before joining ACS in 2001 as its first employee, Sam plays an integral role in ACS’s mission to remove barriers to compliance and ensure customers meet their objectives. In 1994, while earning his degree in Electronics Engineering at DeVry University, Sam started working for a small test lab where he gained an in-depth introduction to the EMC and compliance testing industry. Four years later, Sam moved to the manufacturing side. He joined LXE, which designs wireless computers and data collection solutions. Sam’s responsibilities grew from testing for EMC and wireless compliance to securing necessary certifications for products in countries around the world. As Senior Regulatory Engineer, Sam led a staff of professionals dedicated to expediting the approval process and reducing the time to market.
Director of Wireless Certification, ACS
Nobody understands wireless technology like Kirby does. His fascination with the electromagnetic industry began at Florida Atlantic University, where he specialized in EMC, which quickly landed him a position as a compliance engineer at Motorola. Here Kirby was able to really sink his teeth into developing EMC and EMI testing at the ground level, and he advanced to senior compliance engineer, becoming a major figure in their EMC lab. In 2004, Kirby found ACS. With his help, ACS quickly became a TCB and developed its own Wireless Certification Department. With his knowledge and hands-on experience, Kirby manages ACS’s radio device testing and deals with regulatory bodies worldwide, as one of ACS’s most valuable experts in the field.
