EMI Shielding Detail
With the progression of electronic technologies, components in complex systems have become increasingly sensitive to electromagnetic interference. Because of this utilizing EMI shielding methods and materials is crucial to the safety, reliable, and long lasting functioning of all electronics.
EMI shielding simply separates a key component from outside EMI noise that may be interfering with the performance of the part. This method of solving EMI issues keeps EMI noise out (susceptibility) or in (emissions) and is a very effective method for emission and immunity issues. Overall, enclosures surrounding any part must be complete and without large openings or apertures that may act as slit antennas. Shielding cans, EMI tape, conductive gaskets are common EMI shielding products.
One unique conductive gasket is KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America’s EZ-Foam™. This thin, cost effective conductive gasket material is a flexible, versatile solution for limited space applications including smart phones, tablet PCs, navigation systems, and many more applications. It can go around an I/O area to ensure no EMI noise leaks out or can be used for grounding and ESD related purposes.
KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America’s EMI shielding materials offer cable shielding components as well such as our cable shielding jackets and our EMI heat shrink tubes.
Finally, for those who have an LCD screen or display window that requires EMI shielding, EMI shielding film is the ideal solution for any openings. KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America offers transparent EMI window shielding flim that comes with adhesive for easy installation.
