Consumer electronics are particularly prone to water damage due to their broad environmental exposure. A typical consumer device can only last for a few seconds under water.

Mr. Tom Fisher will unravel techniques that are used by most advanced device manufacturers to improve the durability of consumer devices. You will gain an overview of the waterproofing techniques with emphasis on nanometer range membranes. The presentation will also go over practical applications of waterproofing at IPX8 levels and beyond.
