EMI/RF Shielding: The Part with Many Names

Radio Frequency Shielding EMI/RF shielding limits the amount of radiation that is transmitted from radio frequency equipment into the open environment. They are expertly crafted with conductive or magnetic material to reduce the electromagnetic field within a space in order to isolate electrical devices. Electromagnetic radiation can disrupt the signals of communication devices and medical…

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.
