Board-level EMI shield comes with an assembly height as low as 1mm

November 26, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Designed for applications with compact space requirements, Laird’s ultra-low height two-piece board-level shield incorporates a frame with drawn latch features that accommodates an assembly height as low as 1 mm.

The patent pending drawn latch design allows for simplified tooling and tighter tolerances, which enhances structural rigidity while preserving co-planarity. The frame’s drawn latch engages with openings in the cover and allows for removable attachment to the frame. The cover may be attached to, detached from, and subsequently reattached to the frame in confined areas without interfering with other electrical components mounted on the PCB outside the frame.
