Date Published: 5/3/2007 Conference: Medical Electronics Symposium
Designing electro medical devices to meet the EMC performance requirements can be achieved in a number of ways, including the use of enclosures or housings with electromagnetic shielding capabilities. Properly designed, such shields can provide emission and immunity protection to electromagnetic signals. There are a variety of shield material options, including melt process able conductive thermoplastic composites that offer intrinsic shielding. This paper presents information on these composites and their use as electromagnetic shields. Shielding models, product performance features along with design and processing information critical to delivering effective shielding will be discussed.
Key words: electromagnetic shielding, conductive thermoplastics, electromagnetic compatibility
