Circuit boards expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in mechanical engineering and/or electrical engineering. While many circuit board consultants have engineering expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court, in a manner whereby lay people (the judge and jurors) can understand the technical evidence. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an engineer with prior expert witness testimony experience. A printed circuit board (PCB) connects electrical or electronic components, with the components generally soldered onto the PCB to electrically connect and fasten them.
An expert witness in the circuit board field will typically provide his or her expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement case, trade secret matter, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), or a proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Less frequently, a circuit boards expert might provide testimony in a torts matter like a product liability case involving the failure analysis of a consumer electronics product or medical device. Litigation support activities could include reverse engineering, an expert report, expert opinion testimony, deposition testimony, and/or trial testimony. Clients may also seek an experienced electrical engineer for pre-litigation expert consultant work.
