HZO Hosts Improving Automotive Electronic Performance In Harsh Service Environments

Sep 11, 2020

Raleigh, NC – September 1, 2020 – HZO, a global leader in delivering world-class protective nanocoatings that safeguard electronics from the most demanding corrosive and liquid environments, is hosting an industry webinar, “Improving Automotive Electronic Performance in Harsh Service Environments” on Thursday, September 17 at 1:00pm EDT via Zoom. 

By 2030, electronics will account for 50% of a car’s total cost, worldwide, as the automotive industry shifts towards more autonomy.

Electronic components intended for automotive applications face exposure to wide temperature extremes, myriad fluids, and random vibrations. Under the hood, Parylene exhibits beneficial properties conducive to reliable operation, including good abrasion resistance, low moisture permeability, and excellent thermal properties. In-cabin, nanocoatings are a competitive method for splash and moisture resistance from any liquid type.

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  1. Current and future trends driving the evolution of automotive electronic components. 
  2. Challenges that these trends present for manufacturers and their design engineers.  
  3. How to protect electronic components from severe service environments. 
  4. Why engineers are turning to thin-film alternatives instead of the traditional protection methods.  
  5. The beneficial properties of Parylene and nanocoatings.

 
Calvin Jennings joined HZO with over 20 years of experience in the automotive electronic business working for such companies as Ford, Visteon, Continental, and HBPO.

Jennings worked in many areas of the automotive industry, from manufacturing and design engineering at Ford to business development and sales at Visteon, Continental, and HBPO. He was responsible for developing the North American Japanese/Korean OEM business for the instrument cluster business unit at Continental, where he grew the business from one OEM to six OEMs and nearly $200M annual sales. During his career, he has worked with teams in Europe, Asia, South America, U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

Jennings holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Widener University and an MBA from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business.

Dominique Throop has worked in the automotive industry for over five years at a Massachusetts based Tier II supplier working with many Tier I and OEM companies. She has experience as a Quality Engineer and a Sr. Materials Engineer, as well as a few other roles along the way. Throop holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
