Director of marketing, Micropross
The transmission of power by induction is today a process that is well controlled. Safety for the human being and his surroundings is ensured by different mechanisms, one of them being the detection of foreign objects. Users got into the habit of inserting RFID cards, such as transportation or banking cards, inside the cover of their cell phones for convenience reasons, creating thus the risk of having those cards exposed to an unexpected amount of power during a wireless charging procedure. In order to prevent risk of damaging RFID cards, the WPC led an initiative aiming at defining additional test procedures for power transmitters. This technical session will give more details on the different path that have been explored during this initiative, and give insights on how additional test cases may look like.
Wireless Charging is a technology which is getting more and more used by consumers. In order to drive its adoption, it is necessary to make the experience as flawless and secure as possible. This can be achieved by increasing the level of test at the different stages of the life cycle of a product, such as V&V, conformance, and manufacturing. This technical session will address the different tests that may be performed, based on our return of experience and various customer feedback received throughout the years.
As director of marketing - NFC and Wireless Charging, Stéphane Czeck defines the R&D roadmap of National Instruments for those topics, and makes sure it stays consistent with the requirements of the market. He has gathered 15 years of experience in smartcards, RFID, NFC and wireless power areas, and spends a significant part of his time spreading the word about the importance of a massive adoption of the related technologies, and how relevant Micropross test equipment are to test them. He has already held specialized seminars in various parts of the planet, such as China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Germany and the United States.
His enthusiasm for the technology, the market in general, and the customers in particular make Stéphane a very appreciated speaker, telling inspired stories and giving valuable insights about his domain of expertise.
Stéphane holds an engineering degree in computer science, microelectronics and automated systems from the University of Lille 1.
