Overview: There has been a significant amount of innovation in the EMC market over the last 12 months, including breakthroughs in test instrumentation, new ideas in components, and advancements in materials. This session will allow engineers to learn about these new innovations and how they can make the EMC design and test process easier and more efficient.
Join EMC consultants and co-authors of “EMI Troubleshooting Cookbook for Product Designers,” Patrick Andre and Ken Wyatt while they discuss the above ideas and look over the entries to the all-new 2015 EMC Product of the Year contest.
Pat and Ken will review the items on display this year, and announce the winners, as chosen by EMC Live 2015 attendees.
