CPMT Chapter Technical Meeting

The CPMT Chapter of the IEEE Orlando Section is planning to sponsor a technical meeting in conjunction with Sealing Devices, Inc. on EMI / EMC Design Basics and Fundamentals of EMI Shielding (see below for abstract and speaker biography) on Tuesday evening, November 08 (immediately preceding the ExCom meeting). The exact time and location are still to be determined, and will depend on the level of interest in attending received.

Abstract: Effective EMI control comes down to suppression and containment. In the drive for faster feature rich devices while balancing SWaP, which do you use? Practical strategies utilize both - seminar topics include EMI/EMC design basics, fundamentals of EMI shielding and EMI/EMC mechanical design (including factors affecting the choice of EMI shielding materials for given application parameters). From conductive flexible materials, coatings, to nano particles, hear what to consider when, see some of the latest EMI shielding materials and techniques, with practical examples, available for more effective package design to meet EMC requirements and avoid last minute issues in compliance testing

Speaker Bio: Michael Moretti, BS, Industrial Engineering, University of Buffalo and BS, Business Admin, State University of New York. Product Manager for EMI and Thermal management materials for Sealing Devices Inc., with over 15+ years of experience working with design engineers on effective EMI shielding solutions across multiple markets, combining engineering and business expertise to support customer projects/designs from concept through production while understanding quality, cost and schedule objectives.
