Wireless Interference: How to Handle This Growing Challenge
As the use of wireless communications such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, G5 and nearfield communications (NFC) have become more common, they have brought with them a new issue — wireless interference.
As these wireless signals are crossed, they can interfere with other devices. This interference can cause anything from a minor annoyance to a major catastrophic failure.
At Marking Systems, we recommend our clients use EMI/RFI shielding material to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from interfering with other sensitive electronics.
In the past, experts have turned to options like faraday cages to solve some of these issues. But faraday cages are expensive and can significantly increase the weight of small devices. When cost and weight matter, you want to look at other options.
THE SOLUTION: SHIELDING TAPES
Using shielding tapes, plated with copper, tin or aluminum, you can eliminate the need for a heavy faraday cage and replace it with a cost-effective, easy-to-die-cut option. These flame-retardant electrically conductive tapes can be used for a number of electrical applications, such as shielding and grounding.
Let our experts work with your team to determine the best die-cut shielding option for your project.
