Using the PSMA Database

July 24, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

IEEE Chicago/Rockford Consultants’ Network

 “Using the PSMA Database” by Jim Spangler.

Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PMSA) is a non-profit whose members include manufacturers of power sources and components, academia, and designers/consultants, all related in some manner to creating and using a wide variety of electronic power sources. As part of its mission to serve the industry, PSMA has a database of regulations affecting power sources. This database differs from others in that it is organized as matrix that includes region, country, agency, and product type. Jim will give a live presentation of how the data base functions.
