Electronics Expert Witnesses
What is an electronics expert witness?
Electronics expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with an advanced degree in electrical engineering or software engineering. An expert witness should not only have substantive technical expertise, but also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to a judge and jury. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, law firms may require previous expert witness testimony experience. The chosen expert witness could be a member of an industry organization such as the IEEE.
What types of cases require an electronics expert witness?
Electronics is used in information processing, telecommunication, and signal processing. Semiconductor device technology is a branch of solid-state electronics. An electronics expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. Product liability and personal injury cases also frequently require the expertise of an electronics expert witness.
