Steve Hopwood
Senior Applications Engineer & Engineering Manager @Knowles Precision Devices
Steve has nearly 35yrs of experience in Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) industry, specializing in capacitor applications and EMI filters using MLCC capacitors (chip caps, discoidals and planar arrays). Before moving to an applications engineering role providing technical support to customers, with an emphasis on those in the EV market, he spent time as a design and process engineer in MLCC and EMI filter manufacturing. In that time, he gained technical expertise in soldering (especially high temperature, specialist alloys and soldering to ceramics materials) and experience with handling ceramic capacitors that has led to patents in ceramic capacitor packaging. Additionally, Steve has been involved with the cross industry working group on RoHS exemptions and is the author of RoHS exemption 24.
