Quarterly Case Study Sessions

Everyone needs teaching inspiration now and again! Once a quarter, Educators using CES EduPack can join Dr. Claes Frediksson, who will present a new advanced industrial case study. After the session, the PowerPoint presentation with notes will be shared, ready to be used in the classroom. Please register for each individual case study web seminar session.

Consumer electronics: Materials for a Tablet

Broadcast dates: December 14 and 19

Consumer electronics has a huge impact on the global economy, the environment, and people’s daily lives. More than a billion mobile phones are sold every year, and laptops and tablets are not far behind.

In this case study, our eco-data expert, Luca, will explore several aspects of the materials in a tablet device with a generic bill-of-materials. CES EduPack is used to benchmark options for the backplate casing from a mechanical and sustainability perspective. High-performance glasses that are used for tablet displays (and mobile phones) are compared, and relevant battery types are investigated. All with the design aspects of real-world products in mind.
