The boom of technology-enhanced the automotive industry just as it did the rest of our lives, but with the capacities that technology enables – in-car Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, and more – came a greater need for EMI shielding. In the automotive industry, with safety being the absolute priority, it became more important than ever that […]
The most widely-used EMI gasket fabrication technique. Compression molding is the most reliable and widely-used technique for crafting EMI shielding gaskets. While other techniques are suitable for low-volume production such as prototyping, the compression molding process is efficient, precise and durable when conducted properly – efficient being the most highly-valued characteristic, as engineers continue to […]
Too often with mechanical, electrical and other software systems, this testing is not a priority, resulting in performance failure. Read on for tips on how to navigate compliance testing for your device.
Vent Cover Design Provides EMI Shielding The Challenge A unique, energy-efficient light spectrum indoor grow light was developed for large scale commercial indoor agriculture, but produced emissions and needed several design changes to perform optimally. It was important that the manufacturer covered the dual light bulbs and added EMI/RF shielding to protect the electronics. Design […]
Gasket junction design and selection requires an understanding of the concepts of electromagnetic interference. Gasket design fails when the designer does not treat the mating surface with the same attention as the selection of the gasket material. A gasketing surface that is rigid, as conductive as possible, and recessed to house the gasket is ideal. […]
