Designing Electronic Product Enclosures (Hardcover)
Elucidates successful enclosure design for electronic products, defining the design team and the definition of success Explains the processes for building enclosures, including printed circuit board layout (mechanical considerations) and optimal object placement, structural considerations, material selection, and user interface design Includes treatment of serviceability, product environments, standards and testing, cooling techniques as well as guidelines for Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC) standards and testing required to pass FCC/CE Reinforces design concepts presented with relevant solved problems
Tony Serksnis began his career in the drafting room of the Lincoln Electric Company running blueprints in 1964. He apprenticed as a tool and die designer while attending night school. After earning a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona in 1977, he joined the Material Fabrication Group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Was a part of the design team that built a precision lathe capable of 0.000001 inch accuracy. He then moved on to positions at Intel Corporation, Sytek Corporation, and Trimble Navigation. While at Trimble, he designed products for the Survey and Construction marketplaces. Later, managed Trimble's Mechanical Engineering Group and was responsible for budgeting, resourcing, prioritization, design and documentation, and project management.
