The shielding performance of bayonet vs. threaded connectors is measured and some possibly surprising conclusions are drawn. Bayonet connectors – more useful than you might think.
If you’re an electrical engineer and consider proper EMC shielding a mechanical only issue, please reconsider your position and keep reading. Proper EMC shielding is both an electrical and mechanical design issue. Thoughtful coordination between the two disciplines is key to successful EMC shielding implementation on most product development projects.
This article provides insight into how shielding is used in product development, in particular the effectiveness of shielding when it is applied at the PCB level.
You’re new to regulatory compliance engineering and you just joined the company fresh out of college. Your boss tells you the company is about to go to production with the latest and greatest product and it has... Read More...
When considering filters and filtered connectors to help eliminate noise issues in a system, determining the best EMI solution is based on the mechanical configuration of that system.
The effectiveness of different materials for shielding can be tested using near field probes and your vector network analyzer (VNA).
In this article, we analyze the shielding effectiveness equations (SE = R + A + B) as defined by Ott, Schnelkunoff, White, and Frederick. The analysis consists of deriving the values of R and A, and evaluating ... Read More...
