Countering Threats from Transients in Magnetics ; Exxelia to Showcase Innovations at CMSE 2024

Exxelia is pleased to exhibit at CMSE 2024 in Four Points by Sheraton hotel, in Los Angeles, from April 30 to May 2, 2024. Visit our booth B11

CMSE 2024The event will feature a compelling presentation by Exxelia's own Victor Quinn* on the topic of magnetics. 



CMSEVictor Quinn, a renowned expert in magnetics, will be taking the stage at the CMSE (Component, Materials, and Systems Engineering) conference in Los Angeles to deliver a compelling presentation titled "Countering Threats from Transients in Magnetics." This presentation aims to shed light on the potential risks posed by transient conditions on magnetic components and provide valuable insights into mitigating these risks throughout the product lifecycle.


About the Session:

Victor Quinn's presentation will delve into the nuances of transient-induced failures in magnetic components, offering attendees a comprehensive understanding of the underlying mechanisms at play. By exploring real-world case studies and practical examples, Quinn will highlight the diverse range of transient threats that engineers may encounter in their designs.

The insights shared in Victor Quinn's presentation are expected to resonate with a wide audience, including component engineers, design engineers, project managers, and other magnetics sourcing authorities. 


Why Attend:

Transient conditions may cause unexpected responses from magnetic components.

These responses may threaten system functions and reliability. Presentation content will help attendees understand potential threats from transients in magnetic components and learn related risk mitigation strategies starting at initial specification phase through qualified production.

The presentation content is expected to benefit component engineers, design engineers, project managers and other magnetics sourcing authorities interested in preventing failures from transient conditions. Exxelia invites all attendees to join this insightful session to explore the fascinating world of magnetics.
