Where is the EMI shield­ing in­dus­try head­ing?

As the terms sug­gest, elec­tro­mag­netic in­ter­fer­ence (EMI) shield­ing, also known as ra­diofre­quency in­ter­fer­ence (RFI) shield­ing, pro­tects elec­tronic equip­ment and de­vices from the in­flu­ence of EMI and RFI. This is done by cre­at­ing an elec­tro­mag­netic layer a

EMI shields come in the form of con­duc­tive en­clo­sures that block elec­tro­mag­netic ra­di­a­tion, spe­cially de­signed gas­kets, con­duc­tive paints and coat­ings, foils and tapes, and EMI fil­ters. Gas­kets de­signed to in­hibit EMI in­clude fin­ger-stock gas­kets, fab­ric-over­foam gas­kets, mesh gas­kets, and gas­kets made up of a com­bi­na­tion of ma­te­ri­als. The goal of each of these shield­ing ap­proaches is to ef­fec­tively pro­tect elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic de­vices against po­ten­tially dam­ag­ing EMI.

Any in­dus­try that uses mod­ern com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vices will need EMI shield­ing for its equip­ment. Wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion, aero­space, health­care, au­to­mo­tive, de­fence, and con­sumer elec­tron­ics are just some of the in­dus­tries that re­quire ef­fec­tive EMI shield­ing for their elec­tronic sys­tems.

The rapid progress of wire­less tech­nol­ogy

Due to rapid ad­vances in wire­less tech­nol­ogy and the on­go­ing minia­tur­i­sa­tion of elec­tronic de­vices, the EMI shield­ing in­dus­try con­tin­ues
