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
