The CE marking is required for many products. It states that the product is assessed before being placed on the market and meets EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements.

CE marking – Enterprise and Industry

The CE marking (also known as CE mark) is a mandatory conformity mark on many products placed on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA).

CE – Conformite Europeenne – Safety Standards

CE marking signifies that the product conforms with all EC directives that apply to it. For example, most electrical products must comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the EMC Directive; electrical toys must also comply with the Toy Safety Directive.

“It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to carry out the con- formity assessment, to set up the technical file, to issue the EC declaration of conformity and to affix CE marking on a product. Distributors must verify the presence of both the CE marking and the necessary supporting documentation. If the product is being imported from a third country, the importer has to verify that the manufacturer outside the EU has undertaken the necessary steps and that the documentation is available upon request.”

Voluntary Standards Cover the Spectrum: from Multipurpose Utility Vehicles to Magnet Wire

Magnet Wire - ANSI and NEMA

Magnet Wire

Magnet wire, also known as winding wire, is an insulated copper or aluminum electrical conductor used in motors, transformers, and other electromagnetic equipment. When wound into a coil and energized, magnet wire creates an electromagnetic field for use in energy transformation as well as a wide range of communications applications and products.

The Next IC Design Methodology Transition Is Long Overdue

IC Design Methodology Transition

“From the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, these two factors combined to raise designer productivity from 4-5 gates/day up to 500-1000 gates/day. Figure 1 shows a slow increase in productivity that can be attributed to reuse and incremental tool improvements.”
