How to Increase Flexibility with Board Level Shielding

With today’s electronic devices becoming smaller and smaller, there is a greater need for enclosures and shapes that can accommodate those market demands. Board level shielding effectively reduces or limits the effect of electromagnetic interference (EMI) while offering more flexibility as compared to traditional shielding. Design Flexibility Traditional shielding is generally square or rectangular in…

How Exactly EMI/RFI Shielding Manages Interference

  Electromagnetic interference (EMI), also called radio-frequency interference (RFI), is a disturbance produced by an outside source that affects an electrical circuit due to electromagnetic induction, coupling or conduction.  EMI/RFI shielding is designed to protect electronic devices from malfunction by blocking unwanted external electromagnetic waves or preventing internal electromagnetic waves from emitting and interfering with…

EMI Protection: 3 of the Most Common Myths

  When radios first made their debut, noise interruptions—from pops and bangs to more subtle disruptions—were all chalked up to being part of the listening experience. But as electronic systems began to appear in military applications, the impact of electrical interference on the operation of equipment and the potential to set off false triggers evolved…

Why EMI Shielding Is Crucial for EMI Compliance

  From simple consumer devices to cutting-edge aerospace equipment, all electronic devices share the electromagnetic spectrum. In close proximity, these devices readily interfere with each other’s performance. Radiated interference (RFI) travels via radio waves, and conducted interference occurs due to the magnetic fields generated by power and data cables.
