Highly Adaptable Board Level Shielding Cans Solve EMI/RFI Issues in PCB Designs

High reliability interconnect solutions expert, Harwin, has announced the release of three new board level EMI/RFI shielding cans, supplied in a tape-and-reel format. The new cans measure 10 mm x 10 mm, 15 mm x 10 mm and 30 mm x 10 mm, all with a 3 mm profile height and 0.15 mm thickness. They are the latest additions in Harwin’s existing range of EMC products and offer help in solving EMI/RFI issues in PCB designs.

Each can is made from a single piece of un-plated Nickel Silver alloy, with a simple 5-sided shape. These cost-effective items are easy for engineers to fit onto a board, with the use of Harwin’s SMT shield can clips. Secondary soldering operations are eliminated, as these clips are soldered at the same time as the rest of the items populating the PCB. The risk of damaging sensitive circuitry through exposure to extreme heat during hand soldering is avoided.

The removable cans also provide easy access to the devices and circuitry underneath, when rework, maintenance or component replacement is necessary – cans can simply be unplugged and re-inserted as required. Inconvenient de-soldering and solder clean-up is all removed from the rework process required by other EMC can styles. With the new additions, the Harwin board level EMI/RFI shielding range covers 10mm square to 50mm x 25mm sizes, with heights from 2.5mm to 5mm and material thicknesses of 0.15mm to 0.30mm. Ready-made, these products are all available in volume directly from stock.

According to Neil Moore, Product Manager for EMC & Industrial Products at Harwin, tackling electromagnetic emissions is a vital aspect of modern electronic designs, particularly for those involved in wireless communication. The simple shielding cans and clips from Harwin have gained widespread popularity with electronics engineers. And now, the company is delivering a wider choice, aimed at helping with EMC requirements in the smallest handheld and wireless applications.
