EMI ESSENTIALS

EMI INTRODUCTION
Overview of EMC/RFI Issues
The phenomenon of electromagnetic interference (EMI) is familiar to virtually everyone, even if they do not
understand the underlying principles. Most people have witnessed firsthand the effects of interference.
To control EMI, government organizations, such as the FCC, CSA, and EEC, mandate that manufacturers may
not design, produce or sell electronic equipment that jams the public broadcast services. In other instances,
however, EMI can constitute more than a mere nuisance. The military and medical communities, for example,
require trouble-free operation of their electronic equipment in adverse electromagnetic environments since
malfunctions could jeopardize missions and personnel. The European Unions EMC directive also mandates
that the apparatus has an adequate level of intrinsic immunity to electromagnetic disturbance to enable it
to operate as intended.

EMC Design of High Speed Systems


The interference and susceptibility (immunity) effects of electronic apparatus are created by time-variant
electromagnetic fields which may be propagated along a conducting medium or by radiation through space.
Because the source of the conducted and radiated interference energy levels may be related, a coordinated
systems design effort is required to reduce these effects.
A design program for an equipment item that must meet both an emission and an immunity requirement
consists of:
Suppression: Reducing the interference at its source.
Isolation: Isolating the offending circuits by filtering, grounding and shielding.
Desensitization: Increasing the immunity of any susceptible circuits.
These three steps should be carried on throughout the entire equipment design and implemented as early
as possible within the design program.

Effects of Logic Speed


The trend in todays electronic devices is faster, smaller, and digital rather than analog. Most equipment
(95%) of today contains digital circuits. Todays digital designer must create a circuit board that has the
lowest possible EMI, combined with the highest possible operating/processing speeds. Design of the PCB
is the most critical EMC influencing factor for any system, since virtually all active devices are located on
the board. It is the changing current (accelerated electron movement) produced by the active devices that
result in EMI.

Design Approaches
There are two approaches that can be used to reduce the emission from the PC board. The first approach is
to operate the circuit at the slowest speeds consistent with the functionality of the system, lay out the PCB
with the smallest possible loop areas (especially the high speed devices), and insert suppression components
such as filters, ferrite beads, and bypass capacitors into the circuit to reduce its bandwidth. These techniques
will result in a desired decrease in the high frequency harmonic amplitudes and circuit bandwidth and a
corresponding undesired decrease in both the operating speed and system reliability. The use of slower
speeds with reduced bandwidth will help to desensitize the circuit to external susceptibility fields.
The second is to use shielding. Shielding is the only non-invasive suppression technique. Since the shielding
is not inserted into the circuit, it does not affect the high frequency operating speed of the system, nor does
it affect the operation of the system should changes be made to the design in the future. In addition,
shielding does not create timing problems and waveform distortion; it does not decrease system reliability;
and it reduces crosstalk. Plus, shielding works for both emission suppression as well as susceptibility
(immunity) problems.
2

Even with the overall advantages of shielding, the most cost-effective approach is to use a combination
of circuit suppression/hardening and shielding.

BOARD LEVEL SHIELDS


EZ PEEL
PATENTED SHIELDS ARE SCORED TO ALLOW PEEL-OFF WHEN ACCESS IS NEEDED
These patented shields have a solid top, scored to allow peel-off when access to board level components within
the shield is required.
The peel-off feature prevents damage to the board and components by eliminating the need for labor intensive
de-soldering, which can often result in increased scrap. Peeling off the cover is accomplished by using a small
starter hole for simple removal. This hand operation requires minimal force using a hook scriber or tweezers.
After repair, replacement or adjustment of internal components, the shield can be resealed using a replacement
cover. Laird offers two replacement cover options: a snap-in cover and a dish cover.
The snap-in cover utilizes a lance and hole design. The replacement cover snaps into place and locks into a lance
feature on the frame of the original shield.
The other option is a dish cover that gets soldered into place on the board. The dish shape allows for self-location
of the cover for soldering.
EZ Peel board level shields can be packaged in tape and reel formats for easy SMT installation using conventional
pick-and-place equipment. The four standard sizes are also available without the EZ Peel (scored) feature.

Features and Benefits:


Easy removal of scored cover area
Only requires 1.5 lbs force for
cover removal
Simple replacement technique
for cover
Use on surface mount or
through-hole applications
Shield retains all physical
properties after PCMCIA/JEIDA
testing for shock, bending, torque,
drop and vibration
CRS 1008/1010 (tin plated)
for solderability

RIGID CORNER
The rigid corner board-level shield incorporates a corner design that optimizes component rigidity for increased part and printed circuit board
(PCB) firmness. As PCB designers are increasingly using thinner substrates, a rigid frame reinforces the assembly, thereby improving overall
ruggedness and performance. The shield has improved solder joint reliability and resistance to solder joint fracture, especially in drop testing
performance with thin PCBs. Several standard Laird EMI style parts including single-piece, two-piece, and multi-compartmental board-level
shields use this new rigid corner design, along with availability in custom sizes as well.
The rigid corner shield is stronger and more robust than traditional formed shields, which results in coplanarity improvement of the solder
castellations. The shield can tolerate more deflection (i.e., more handling) without plastic deformation. Elimination of drawn flange reduces
the space needed on the PCB for shielding trace width by potentially ~0.3 mm, allowing for the shield to be more closely placed on the PCB.
Elimination of draft allows for more undershield space and improved component clearance.
The partially drawn corner is located near the top portion the shield, resulting in improved torsional rigidity with no drawn lip and no draft.
For parts over 2 mm, the corner is both drawn and formed with an interlocking multi-radius corner, which provides superior EMI shielding
effectiveness. The interlocking corner can be meshed and closed in during the forming and drawing process for additional improved rigidity
for parts taller than 2 mm. For parts under 2 mm, the entire corner is drawn without an interlocking corner.

BOARD LEVEL SHIELDS


INTRODUCTION
The complexities of today's electronics pose several design challenges.
Resolving EMI needs to be balanced with space, weight and production
restraints. When designing a custom shielding solution, beginning in the
earliest stages of the application design allows effective elimination of EMI
while meeting all specifications.
Laird board level shielding experts work through all phases of
development. From design, rapid prototyping and pre-production through
production and automated packaging, Laird has the experience to help speed
a product to market and stay within budget.
To increase manufacturing throughout and reduce costs, Laird has developed
a proprietary in-line production process that includes part
formation, wash, assembly, inspection and automated packaging.
By integrating quality processes, board level shield quality and performance is
ensured from design stage through final packaging. One process is the automated co-planarity inspection system. Laird replicates the customer application
by measuring shields in the same plane as the printed circuit board. This is
accomplished without "securing" or "touching" shields, which could throw
off measurement and/or deform parts. Laird measures shields immediately
prior to placement into carrier tape at speeds that match automation packing.
Shield base materials include our exclusive Shield-LiteTM, CRS 1008/1010,
beryllium copper alloys, nickel-silver alloys, copper-based alloys and spring
steels. All shields are fully solderable.

ONE-PIECE SHIELD DESIGN


LOW COST/EXCELLENT EFFECTIVENESS
Custom surface mount shields are available in both one-piece and
two-piece designs. One-piece shields provide six sides of protection,
with the sixth side being the board itself. One-piece designs offer
economical shielding alternatives where access to covered components for
repair is not necessary.

TWO-PIECE SHIELD DESIGN


QUICK, EASY REPAIR AND INSPECTION OF COVERED
COMPONENTS
Two-piece board level shields offer users the flexibility to inspect or repair
shielded components without having to risk board damage by removing
the entire shield. Covers snap on and off with ease, making repairs quicker
and easier, and reducing board re-work. Two-piece shields are available
pre-assembled or unassembled. Large locking dimples snap into slots on
covers to provide mechanical retention force. Smaller grounding dimples
provide electrical grounding for proper shielding and to prevent rattle.
Two-piece shields survive drop, shock and no-rattle tests. Here are critical
test results:
Able to withstand acceleration of 4g from 10 Hz to 2000 Hz for three
hours in each of three planes as per SAE J1455
Pass EN 50 155 for railway electrical equipment including vibration test
of 30g from 5 Hz to 200 Hz in 3 directions and a shock test with 500 m/s
for 11/ms
Pass standard telecommunications drop tests [6 faces, dropped 1 meter
onto concrete floor]
Notice: The data set forth in all text, tables, charts, graphs and figures herein are based on samples tested and are
not guaranteed for all samples or applications. Such data are intended as guides and do not reflect product
specification for any specific part. Material properties are for reference only. Product testing by purchaser is recommended to

Series 97-2100

MULTI-COMPARTMENTAL SHIELD DESIGN

SHIELD MULTIPLE CIRCUIT GROUPS SAVE PCB SPACE AND PRODUCTION


TIME

Multi-compartmental shields feature internal dividing walls of one material


thickness and meet all on-board shield requirements for FCC, VDE, CISPR
and CE. These shields are available in two-piece designs, either assembled
or unassembled. Our unassembled versions allow for automatic optical
inspection prior to cover placement. As in all our shielding offerings,
Laird proprietary process for 100% automatic optical
inspection verifies co-planarity including inner walls.

DRAWN BOARD LEVEL SHIELDS

SEAMLESS CORNERS ADDRESS HIGH-FREQUENCY LEAKAGE

As microprocessor speeds continue to increase, so does the potential for EMI


leakage through the smallest apertures in board level shields. Laird drawn board
level shields are designed to provide additional near-field and far-field circuit
isolation (attenuation) at higher frequencies by eliminating the apertures found
in the corners of traditional board level solutions. Drawn board level shields
utilize small ground trace sizes, thereby preserving space on the circuit board.
Solid corner designs when additional circuit isolation (attenuation) is
required at higher frequencies
Available in custom heights up to .250" (6,4 mm) with length and width
dimensions from .300" (7,6 mm) to 2.0" (50,8 mm)
Tape and reel packaging provides an economical and automated SMT

^ Shielding gaskets may be mounted for either


wiping or compression closing applications.
Proper positioning of the shielding gasket must
take into consideration the closing design and
the configuration of the mounting surface.

Laird shielding devices may be mounted quickly and easily using any of several different
methods. Each installation method is described in the text that follows. However, if you should
run into a unique situation not resolved by any of these methods, give us a call. More than
likely we can provide the exact answer you need.

Sticky Fingers

Clip-On Mounting Tape Track Mount

RIVET MOUNT

4. Allow 24 hours minimum curing time.

Riveting produces a tight, long-lasting installation. Either plastic or metal rivets may be used.

Standard parts are supplied with nonconductive tape. For rough surface
applications, such as flame-sprayed surfaces, 0.010 in. (0.254 mm) thick
nonconductive tape is recommended. Optional conductive tape is also available.
Contact a sales department representative for additional ordering information.

SLOT MOUNT
Slot mounted parts are easily installed using slots where bi-directional movement is required.
Simply install part into one slot and snap it into the second slot or over the edge of the frame.

CLIP-ON MOUNTING

ADHESIVE MOUNTING
Sticky Fingers is an instant, pressure-sensitive adhesive bonding system, ideal for all-purpose
contact strips for metal cabinets and electronic enclosures, and is unaffected by temperatures
from -67 to +250F (-55 to +121C).

Clip-on gaskets hold firmly in place due to their own spring characteristics.
Simply push the strips onto the edge or flange of the door or enclosure.
Also available are clip-on gaskets with either T or D lances.

Simply follow these four easy steps:

TAPE TRACK MOUNTING

1. Remove all grease and oily residue with solvent. Smooth the mounting surface with emery
cloth.

Stainless Steel mounting track with PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) is available
on the Symmetrical Slotted Series and Slot Mount Series.

2. Peel off protective paper backing.

WELDING

3. Place gasket in correct position. (See mounting methods diagrams A through E.) Press firmly
to ensure a good adhesive bond. Avoid repositioning, which might impair the effectiveness of
the adhesive or may bend or kink the strip.

Welded mounting requires simple, traditional welding techniques.

NOTE: On items where fingers cover the solid portion of the gasket, pressure may be applied
16 by inserting a mandrel in the strip and pressing down. For contact strips with Magnefil insert,
simply press down on the fingers.

SOLDERING
Solder mounting requires normal low temperature soldering techniques,
including cleaning and fluxing of parts with common copper flux materials.

VARIABLE SLOT MOUNT
Laird introduces Variable Slot Mount shielding, which eliminates the
use of long slots while still utilizing the easy installation method of
slot mount shielding. Fingers are removed from the strip in areas
where a mounting slot is not present. The Variable Slot Mount
shielding strips can be customized to any patterned series of slots.
Easy and cost-effective installation since fasteners and adhesives
are not required
Improved shielding effectiveness compared to traditional slot
mount series through elimination of long slots in host material
Slot mounting feature can be varied to accommodate different
lengths and hole mounting patterns (see figure 2)
Three and five pitch segments ideal for grounding applications
Bi-directional wiping and compression action to accommodate a
wide variety of designs
Available in standard (77-Series) and UltraSoft (78-Series low
compression versions)
Ability to retrofit equipment when higher clock speeds limit current
slot mount product without changing slot size or location
One piece construction eliminates handling individual pieces,
thereby shortening installation time
Ideal for grounding and shielding in the following electronic
enclosure applications:
Front panel handles Chassis covers
Backplanes

WITH STICKY FINGERS

Series 97-951/954/957 are low compression, adhesivemounted beryllium copper shielding strips. Designed as
a continuous band, the strip is slotted to permit spring
contact throughout its length. A wide radius profile creates
the greatest contact for maximum conductivity with minimum compression
requirements. As with all Sticky Fingers shielding strips, a self-adhesive tape
makes mounting easy and secure. All are available in your choice of finishes,
see page 17.

This product is uniquely designed for those applications where a lid
or cover is closed using a sliding motion to complete the closure.
The solid top design allows the cover to slide either perpendicularly or
parallel to the fingerstock without snagging or damaging the gasket.
Solid top provides an additional 10 dB of shielding effectiveness
Offered in both rivet mount and tape mount versions
Available with two types of rivets
Generous radii provide maximum conductivity with minimum
compression forces
Parts can be modified and/or cut to any specific length
For longitudinal sliding applications, a retention clip is
recommended for secure mounting
Available in standard or UltraSoft (part numbers beginning with
-98) versions

These versatile gaskets are made from highperformance beryllium copper with Sticky Fingers
self-adhesive backing. They provide an extremely
tight, instant bond and are ideal as an all-purpose
contact strip for metal cabinets and electronic
enclosures, particularly where space is critical.
Magnetic field shielding effectiveness of these strips has been proven
to be > 46 dB for a 14 kHz plane wave and 108 dB for a 10 GHz
plane wave. When tested per MIL-STD-285 for electromagnetic
shielding, these strips showed superior performance under minimum
compression. They proved to be especially effective where variations
exist in the space to be shielded and in applications that require high
shielding performance despite frequent opening and closing of the
cabinet.

This series from Laird is designed for use where high temperature
or other design considerations preclude the use of adhesive-mounted gasketing. Yet it provides the same shielding characteristics
and effectiveness as on Sticky Fingers mounted series. Clip-On
Gaskets offer shielding effectiveness >100 dB for 100 MHz plane
wave. All are available in your choice of finishes, see page 17.
These 97-Series products are also available in UltraSoft low
compression force 98-Series.
SNAP-TITE WITH D LANCE
This configuration has been designed specifically to provide outstanding holding power. D lances snap into drilled or punched
holes in the mounting surface to create a strong omnidirectional
grip with excellent conductivity.
GRIP-TITE WITH T LANCE
Ideal for use with softer materials, such as aluminum or plated
1
plastic. T lances bite into theVIEW
mounting
surface and preserve
B
electricalHconductivity.

USB CONNECTOR

*97-725 is available without the formed bends or with bends of varying sizes to accommodate your requirements for a
variety of connector sizes.

Laird offers the USB (Universal Serial Bus) Type B connector gasket.
The unique design easily snaps onto the connector prior to placement on the
printed circuit board and fits all Series B USB right angle connector brands.
Made from high performance beryllium copper, these gaskets provide superior
grounding characteristics and enhances the shielding of the connector due to
the short electrical path to the ground plane provided when the gasket makes
contact with the connector.
Gasket easily snaps onto the connector for a secure fit
Connector/gasket assembly can be placed onto the board via pick-and-place
High clip force attaches clip to connector body for good electrical contact
and secure transport prior to soldering
Once the shielded connector assembly is soldered to the PCB, the shield is
captivated between board and connector and provides reliable contact
between the connector and faceplate

Laird offers the GBIC Shield for reducing emissions from GBIC
(GigaBit Interface Converter) fiber optic transceivers. Fiber optic transceivers
can be a troublesome source of EMI because they emit high-frequency signals
and are located adjacent to large apertures in the enclosure. The GBIC Fiber
Optic Shield assembly reduces the radiated emissions from the transceivers
by conducting interference current away from the transceiver and onto the
enclosure surface.

CUSTOM DESIGN
CUSTOM PRECISION ELECTRONIC CONTACTS
GAIN MAXIMUM ELECTRICAL AND CARRYING PERFORMANCE
From concept to placement, Laird has the expertise to deliver custom
precision surface mount contacts. Using the latest computer simulation
techniques, Laird provides properly designed contacts that ground, carry current
and signals, and interconnect boards and devices. Laird uses basic geometric
parameters (length, width, uncompressed height, compressed height, contact
force) to conduct Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on your prospective design. With
the FEA results, we can then identify the best design to optimize a product's
operational performance. Features are incorporated to provide for placement and
soldering of the contact onto the circuit board.
Laird offers a wide range of plating options to allow for maximum electrical current carrying performance.
Automated packaging allows for complex and small designs with lower
^
installed costs.
Contact base materials include beryllium copper, phosphor bronze, nickel
and stainless steel. All contacts are fully solderable as required.

EMI ESSENTIALS

METALS GALVANIC COMPATIBILITY


CHART
For harsh environments (presence of fair to good ionic
conductors), all metals in contact with each other should be no
more than one level of the chart apart to minimize corrosion. This
is shown by the dark blue regions of the plating bar chart under
specific platings. Outdoor applications, high humidity and salt air
fall into this category.
For normal environments (storage in warehouses or
non-temperature/humidity-controlled environments, etc.), the
difference between dissimilar metals should not exceed 0.25 volts
(5 chart levels counting the origin). This is shown by thelight blue
regions of the chart under specific platings.

For office environments (temperature and humidity controlled), 0.5


volts can be tolerated(10 chart levels counting the origin). This is
shown by the dark gray regions under specific platings. Caution
should be maintained when deciding that your application is
temperature and humidity controlled. Many devices intended for
use in office environments are storedin warehouses for extended
periods of time before and in between use.
These are general guidelines which apply under most circumstances, but
corrosion is a very complex subject whose details could not possibly fit in
this space. If you are not sure which metals are compatible, please feel free
to contact Laird and talk to our corrosion experts.

MaxAirTM
COMBINING EMI INNOVATION
AND COST EFFICIENCY
Laird's patented MaxAir vent panel product line provides
an innovative cost effective approach for providing
increased airflow and EMI protection for
telecommunications hardware equipment such
as fans and server racks.
This metallized polycarbonate honeycomb material
provides a rigid medium eliminating the need for costly
frame designs. This frameless design allows greater airflow
through the entire honeycomb surface and ease of
installation through its press-to-fit assembly. The MaxAir
vent panel provides greater durability and flexibility than
traditional aluminum vent panels.
Varying densities of material are available to meet specific
levels of rigidity requirements. The honeycomb cell size can
be 0.125 in (3,18mm) or 0.250 in (6,35mm) in standard
thicknesses of 0.250 in (6,35mm) and 0.500 in (12,70mm).

www.lairdtech.com

The recommended operating compression for Fabric-Over-Foam


EMI Gaskets will vary depending on the shape and size of the
particular gasket.
Typically, D-Shaped, Rectangular Shaped, and Square Shaped
Fabric-Over-Foam EMI Gaskets should be compressed between
30% and 50% of the foam height.
Similarly, C-Shaped Fabric-Over-Foam EMI Gaskets should
typically be compressed between 50% and 75% of the
gasket height.
Force Displacement Resistance (FDR) graphs are available upon
request. Please contact engineering department at Laird when
unsure.
Certain combinations of materials may not be available for all
Profiles or I/Os. Please consult the Engineering Department at

BASIC I/O GASKET DESIGN


1. Space between required cutouts should match or exceed 0.060" (1,5 mm).
2. D
 istance from the edge of a cutout should be at least 0.060" (1,5 mm)
from the edge of the gasket. In most cases, a slot can be used in place
of a hole that is positioned too close to the gasket edge.
3. All cutouts and locations are designed customer specifications.
4. P ressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) and Extended Release Liner (ERL) can be
applied in parallel with the long edge of the gasket.
The recommended operating compression for Fabric-Over-Foam EMI gaskets
will vary depending on the shape and size of the particular gasket. Typically,
I/O gaskets should be compressed between 30% and 50% of the foam height.

ELECTROMESH TAPE
Laird ElectroMesh tape has a double layered strip of knitted wire mesh to
provide effective EMI shielding and grounding for electrical and
electronic cable assemblies.
It is particularly useful in applications where the need for EMI protection is
determined after cable assembly is complete and standard braided cable
jackets cannot be used. The flexible structure of the ElectroMesh Tape permits
it to conform to irregular surfaces and contours during the wrapping process.
Tin plating for excellent solderability
Useful in both shielding and grounding applications forstatic discharge
Tin plated copper clad steel wire provides greater strength and
performance than other tape materials
Knit loop structure provides uniform coverage without any wrinkles or
creases
Available in other alloys and wire dimensions
Supplied in 50 ft. (15,2 m) rolls. (Note: When determining quantity needed,
50% overlap is recommended.)
Mesh tape also available in Monel (material code 42); BeCu (material
code 40); Aluminum (material code 43); and Stainless Steel (material code
46)
Other alloys available upon request

MRI "A" FABRIC


MRI A FABRIC
Laird MRI A Fabric is an EMI/RFI shielding product that is manufactured using a patented, proprietary technology.
The base layer is a metallized non-woven fabric plated with highly conductive copper and nickel for corrosion resistance.
This is bonded to a thin layer of solid aluminum. The resulting material is a lightweight architectural material with superior
shielding effectiveness and outstanding resilience. Specifically, this product provides superior shielding effectiveness well in
excess of industry standards throughout the MRI frequency range. The product can be applied using several standard construction techniques depending upon the installation requirements or specifications. Because of the relative ease of installation with this product, construction time and therefore, the time to get the MRI facility on-line is greatly reduced.

INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRICALLY
CONDUCTIVE ELASTOMERS
OVERVIEW

ELECTROSEAL GASKET INTRODUCTION

The electrically conductive elastomers are based on dispersed


particles in elastomers, oriented wire in solid or sponge
elastomers, impregnated wire mesh screens or expanded metals.
They provide highly conductive, yet resilient gasketing materials
for EMI sealing as well as pressure and environmental sealing.

Conductive elastomer gaskets are EMI shielding and sealing


devices made from highly conductive, mechanically resilient and
conformable vulcanized elastomers. They are available in the
following types:

Conductive elastomers are used for shielding electronic


enclosures against electromagnetic interference (EMI). Usually,
the shielding system consists of a conductive gasket sandwiched
between a metal housing and lid. The primary function of these
gaskets is to provide sufficient electrical conductivity across
the enclosure/gasket/lid junction to meet grounding and EMI
shielding requirements, as well as prevent intrusion of the fluids
into the electrical components.
Laird offers conductive elastomers in the following forms:
1. ElectroSeal dispersed filler particles in elastomers
2. ElectroMet oriented wire in solid and sponge elastomers,
and impregnated wire mesh and expanded metals

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Flat gaskets or die-cuts


Molded shapes such as O-rings or intricate parts
Extruded profiles or strips
Vulcanized-to-metal covers or flanges
Co-molded or reinforced seals
Form-in-place gaskets

When any two flat, but rigid surfaces are brought together,
slight surface irregularities on each surface prevent them from
meeting completely at all points. These irregularities may be
extremely minute, yet may provide a leakage path for gas or
liquid under pressure, and for high frequency electromagnetic
energy. This problem remains in flange sealing even when very
high closure force is applied.
However, when a gasket fabricated of resilient material is
installed between the mating surfaces, and even minimal
closure pressure is applied, the resilient gasket conforms to the
irregularities in both mating surfaces. As a result, all surface
imperfections and potential leak paths across the joint area
are sealed completely against pneumatic and fluid pressure or
penetration by environmental gases. If the gasket is conductive
as well as resilient, with conductive matrix distributed
throughout its total volume in mesh or particle form, the joint
can be additionally sealed against penetration by, or exit of,
electromagnetic energy.

CASE STUDY
EXAMPLE
A Telecommunication customer A is looking for a gasket for RRU chassis. The chassis will be made of Aluminum by casting.
There is an existing design including groove. Groove dimension is as follows. The customer is looking for an electromagnetic
shielding larger than 50 dB for the chassis. And high reliability is required considering RRU unit will be exposed in open air
and sustain various weather condition such as snow, rain, fog, etc.

Select elastomer base

Selection Process

Conclusion

Take reference of Table 1

Silicone

All the three bases can meet resistance requirement


against weather, but silicone is the most cost effective
one. And also best on availability and processibility.
Select filler system

"Take reference of Table 3 for galvanic performance and


Material Selection Table 6
1. Ag/Al filler would be most compatible with casting
aluminum.
2. Ni/Graphite is a cost effective solution but still acceptable. Can be a candidate for future cost/performance
comparison.
3. Better use a hybrid design considering high reliability
requirement.
4. Both filler system can provide high shielding. But final
performance would rely also on final design."

"Hybrid (NCE+ECE),
ECE81(Ag/Al)
or ECE93(Ni/Graphite) "

Closure force

Medium closure force required because the RRU unit need


to sustain water flush without high pressure

Hollow cross section

Is there an existing design?


(part/groove/flange/interface)

There is an existing groove design. But can not find


corresponding groove recommendation in brochure.
Would need a design on gasket.
Contact Laird FAE for it.

What's the shape?

Existing groove design is rectangle shaped. A standard


double D co-extrusion might work

Decide dimension

"Filling percentage >90% to bear water flush


Compression >=25% considering large coplanarity of
chassis and cover
Final FEA possible to confirm the design
Co-extrusion required because the total length is 1600
mm"

How to mount the gasket?

Would need a PSA to hold the strip in groove

Design Shape & Dimension

Double D co-extrusion or
custom design

But a friction fit design can also be done for easy assembly and cost saving. Example

EMI ESSENTIALS

METAL IMPREGNATED MATERIALS


ELECTROMET ORIENTED WIRE
ElectroMet oriented wire gaskets are EMI shielding and sealing
composites. Monel or aluminum wires embedded in the
elastomer and oriented perpendicular to the mating surfaces
provide the EMI sealing. Solid or sponge silicone provides the
weather sealing; however, solid silicone weather seals are
recommended for high-pressure applications.
Silicone based oriented wire composites are capable of
withstanding temperature ranges from 70F to 500F
(56C to 260C). Oriented wire materials are available in sheet
or strip form with a minimum thickness of 0.032 in. (0,8 mm).
Material specifications and information for standard sheets and
strips are provided in Tables 1 through 3.

AUTOMATED FORM-IN-PLACE
EMI GASKET TECHNOLOGIES
INTRODUCTION
Laird form-in-place is an automated system for dispensing
conductive elastomer EMI shielding and grounding gaskets onto
metal or plastic substrates. Form-in-place is particularly well
suited for cellular phones, PDAs, PC cards, telecom base stations,
radios, and many other compartmentalized cast or plastic
enclosures and packaged electronic assemblies.
Utilizing programmable 3-axis CNC dispensing equipment,
the compound is dispensed accurately onto the substrate and
creates a secure bond during the curing process. The repeatable
computer-controlled dispensing pattern insures consistency
between parts and rapid part program changes. In addition, it
supports all levels of volume from prototyping to high-volume
electronic component production via the use of one or multiple
dispensing heads. The system is programmed to apply custom
gasket configurations onto parts, to form multiple levels on the
part, and on slopes up to approximately 70.
Laird RXP compounds are Room Temperature Vulcanizing
(RTV) elastomers and HXP compounds are High Temperature
Vulcanizing (HTV) elastomers, both filled with proprietary
conductive particles. Dispensed gasket beads of RXP compounds
may be handled in 3 hours, and are cured in 24 hours, under
conditions of standard temperature and 50% Relative Humidity.
Dispensed gasket beads of HXP compounds can be handled
after the materials are cured in an oven. The compounds have
a working compression range from 10% to 50% of the gasket
height, with a recommended design compression of 30% against
a mechanical compression stop. Our product is designed to
support low closure forces and is compatible with plastic, metal,
and plated or chromate finished substrates.
The required force to compress a given bead is a function of the
compound and the gasket size; i.e. smaller gaskets require less
force than larger gaskets. Please refer to our technical data for
details. Gaskets are dispensed on substrates within a placement
tolerance of 0.001 inches and gasket cross-sectional tolerances
from 0.003 to 0.007 inches. Refer to Table 1 on page 104 for
typical gasket dimensions and tolerances. As a normal course of
equipment operations, starting points and termination ends of the
gaskets will have profiles that are approximately 25% larger than
the running gaskets.

TYPICAL APPLICATION FOR FORM-IN-PLACE GASKETS:

Automated dispensing of compound is


controlled by sophisticated computer software,
which is user-friendly and easy to work with.

DESIGN GUIDE FOR


COMMERCIAL MICROWAVE ABSORBERS
Microwave absorbers have been used in military applications
for several decades. They have been traditionally used for EMI
reduction, antenna pattern shaping and radar cross reduction.
More recently with the rise of wireless electronics and the
movement to higher frequencies microwave absorbers or noise
suppression sheets (NSS) are used to reduce electromagnetic
interference (EMI) inside of the wireless electronics assemblies.
Two types of NSS are used for these types of applications.
They are described below:

MAGNETIC ABSORBERS

ABSORBER APPLICATIONS
Electronic operating at high frequencies can have problems with
emission of high frequency noise. Once put inside an enclosure,
the energy will add in phase at certain frequencies to cause
resonances which will hinder the performance of the device.
A good example of this phenomenon is seen in Figure 1.
The amplifier was measured in the condition shown and
subsequently remeasured inside of its enclosure. When put inside
the enclosure the performance was severely degraded due to
cavity resonances inside of the enclosure. The measured data is
shown below in Figure 2.

These are thin (.1 to 3 mm) polymeric materials filled with


magnetic particles. These materials have both high permeability
(magnetic loss properties) and high permittivity (dielectric loss
properties). This combination of properties makes these materials
very effective in eliminating high frequency EMI
Laird has two product types that are used for commercial
applications:
Q-Zorb HP (high permeability) uses novel magnetic fillers to
achieve extremely high permeabilities at low frequencies. This
allows for relatively thin materials to provide EMI reduction at
frequencies below 2 GHz. This material comes in thicknesses
of .15 mm and .5 mm.

FOAM ABSORBERS
These absorbers are based upon open celled foam impregnated
with a carbon coating. The carbon coating makes the resultant
product lossy at microwave frequencies, indeed acting like a
free space resistor to incoming electromagnetic energy. These
foam products range from 3.2 mm to 6.4 mm for internal cavity
applications and can be several centimeters thick for outdoor
applications. Two main product types are offered by Laird
RFLS- Lossy sheets are uniformly loaded with the carbon
coating and used at 3.2 mm and 6.4 mm thick. They are
supplied as sheet materials and may have PSA applied and
fire retardant coatings.
RFRET- is a reticulated foam based absorber. The materials are
thicker ranging from 3/8 to 2 in thickness. They can be used
for air filtration and EMI, or on the inside of cabinet doors for
broadband EMI attenuation.

DESIGN GUIDE FOR


COMMERCIAL MICROWAVE ABSORBERS
To improve the performance of the device, Laird Q-Zorb
microwave absorber was put on the inside cover of the enclosure.
This is a standard way in which absorbers are used. Q-Zorb is
supplied with a pressure sensitive adhesive to allow for ease of
installation. The cover is shown below in Figure 3.

MAGNETIC ABSORBER VS. LOSSY FOAM


In these enclosure applications the designer needs to understand
the tradeoffs between using the magnetic absorber vs the lossy
foam type absorber. The foam absorber is a much more cost
effective solution, provided it will meet the performance goals.
However there are a couple major reasons to use the magnetic
sheet absorbers (Q-Zorb)
Foam absorbers can breakdown over time causing resistive
particles to drop onto to circuit traces
Energy along the side walls of cavity are H field (magnetic)
dominated currents. The E field is at a minimum along the
walls and materials with only dielectric loss (resistive foams)
will not perform very well in these applications. The magnetic
absorbers have high H field loss and attenuate these currents.
Figures 5 and 6 below do show the use of a lossy foam absorber
inside of an amplifier cavity.

Figure 3. Enclosure with Q-Zorb PN 2238 Installed

The amplifier was then measured inside the enclosure with the
Q-Zorb in place. The performance of the amplifier now mirrored
the open condition by absorbing the internal reflections and
surface currents. Figure 4 shows this measurement.

COMMERCIAL MICROWAVE ABSORBERS
TUNED FREQUENCY
VS SURFACE WAVE ABSORBERS
Laird offers two types of Q-Zorb materials: tuned frequency and
surface wave absorbers. Tuned frequency materials are used
in far field applications such as direct radar reflections off of
an object. Surface wave absorbers are used for high angle of
incidence applications and for cavity noise suppression. Many
design engineers that have a cavity noise problem at a certain
frequency want to use a tuned frequency absorber tuned to that
frequency. However that is not the best performance they can
achieve. Note that the tuned frequency materials offer good
performance at normal angles of incidence, but perform more

poorly at higher angles of incidence. Inside the cavity noise


generated is at a number of angles of incidence and also a
significant of surface wave energy. The surface wave materials
offer better performance in these applications. The curves below
compare a tuned frequency absorber at normal incidence and
at all angles of incidence. Note the improved bandwidth of the
surface wave loading especially at higher angles of incidence.
The Q-Zorb samples in the Laird Absorber sample kit are the
surface wave absorber type. They are the best solution for solving
cavity noise problems.

EMI MODELING

SAMPLE KIT

Laird is a member of the EMC Consortium at Missouri Science


and Technology School, Rolla Missouri. As part of this consortium
Laird is modeling the use of absorbers for a variety of applications.
The cavity application discussed above is one of the key areas of
investigation. Other areas include directly placing absorbers on
noisy chips, coating cables to reduce conducted EMI, and use on
antennas. Laird is working on modeling these applications using
3D modeling software including HFSS, Microwave Studio, and
EZ-FTDT. The Q-Zorb can be modeled as a Debye Oscillator and
directly input into the codes. Laird can supply these models to
customers for their own computer modeling. A few examples of
this work are shown in the figures below.

To assist the microwave design engineer in the use of Laird


absorbers, a sample kit containing the different types of
microwave absorbers is offered. The kit contains all three types of
materials including Q-Zorb HF, Q-Zorb HP, and RF Foam.
A description of the sample kit is listed below.

Figure 7. Microwave CST Model of Cable with Q-Zorb Coating

www.lairdtech.com

The samples are 6x 4 in size and can be easily cut into specific
shaped pads. There are various thicknesses to evaluate. Generally
speaking the thicker the sample the better it will work at low
frequency. However if you are constrained by thickness, evaluate
the one that will meet the thickness requirements and then test
the electrical properties of the sample. To make even thicker test
samples the samples can be bonded together. This will allow the
designer to evaluate thickness vs performance.

Q-ZORB 2000 HF (HIGH FREQUENCY)


SURFACE WAVE ABSORBERS
Q-Zorb 2000 HF surface wave absorbers are thin,
magnetically loaded elastomeric sheets designed to
provide attenuation at high angles of incidence for surface
wave attenuation. They are nominally manufactured in
the thickness range of 0.015" to 0.125" (0,4 mm to 3,2
mm). Q-Zorb 2000 is silicone-based, meets the UL V0
fire retardant requirement and is RoHS compliant. Laird
can provide the material die-cut and with a pressuresensitive adhesive for ease of installations. Sheets are
offered in nominal sizes of 24" x 24" (609,6 mm x 609,6
mm), although custom sizes and molded components are
available.

APPLICATIONS

FIGURE 1.

FIGURE 3.

The material can be used inside of microwave housings


to reduce internal resonance and to lower the "Q" of
the microwave cavity. They are also effective in isolating
antennas from ground plane reflections. Q-Zorb can
be used with board-level shielding and other types of
EMI shielding to enhance the shielding effectiveness at
frequencies from 2-40 GHz.

EMI ESSENTIALS

Q-ZORB 3000 HP (HIGH PERMEABILITY)


ABSORBERS CA-19
Q-Zorb 3000 HP product line utilizes special shaped
magnetic fillers in a polymeric binder to produce thin
sheets with excellent low frequency performance. The
product has very high permeabilities along with low
frequency magnetic loss. This allows relatively thin
sheets of material to perform at frequencies below 2
GHz. CA 19 comes in thickness ranges of .006 .15
mm to .020 .5 mm. and is very flexible. The product is
available in rolls 13 wide and any length available. It
can be die cut into specific shapes and is supplied with a
pressure sensitive adhesive backing for ease of use.

APPLICATIONS

Q-Zorb 3000 is used in situations where low frequency


(< 2 GHz) noise problems are occurring. Some
applications include:
Die cut components placed in microwave cavities
Place on top of noisy chip to reduce emissions
Wrapped around cables to reduce conducted
emissions
Used inside of board level shields to improve
shielding performance

Two standard part numbers of Q-Zorb 3000 are


available in the absorber sample kit. This allows the
engineer to see if this product will help solve any
specific EMI problem.

RFRET 4000 RETICULATED


FOAM ABSORBERS
RFRET 4000 is a reticulated foam absorber. Reticulated
foam is an urethane-based foam with a well-defined
open-cell structure. The cell size can be chosen to
optimize penetration of the conductive coating to
which it is adhered. Laird uses two separate processes
to produce its reticulated foam absorber. This unique
spray process applies a coating that is graded through
the thickness of the foam. The grading of the coating also
produces an electrical grading that results in a material with
excellent broadband reflectivity reduction.

APPLICATIONS
RFRET broadband foam is commonly used around
antennas to provide isolation or side lobe reduction.
It can be die-cut into components for EMI reduction
inside microwave cavities and is used to manufacture
antenna hats and test boxes. It can be encapsulated
into a textile cover for use outdoors and fabricated into
blankets, covers and other components. Recently, it has
been used for a combination air/EMI filter in networking
equipment. The product can be made UL 94 HF1 for such
applications.

RFLS 5000 SINGLE LAYER


"LOSSY" FOAM ABSORBERS
APPLICATIONS

RFLS 5000 is a series of single layer "lossy" sheets


produced by dipping lightweight open-celled urethane
foam into a resistive solution. The end product is a
uniform, lightweight, loaded sheet material with a
specified insertion loss at a given frequency. RFLS
offers the lowest cost in microwave absorber products.
Thickness of the sheets range from 0.125" to 1.5"
(3,2 mm to 38,1 mm) and are generally 24" x 24"
(609,6 mm x 609,6 mm). Custom sizes and components
can be fabricated. The insertion loss of the product is
measured in an insertion tunnel over the 2 to 18 GHz
frequency range. Specifications are generally given
at 3 or 10 GHz. The material can be die-cut into
components and supplied with a pressure-sensitive
adhesive for ease of application.

PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT
ABSORBER BOARD-LEVEL SHIELDING (ABLS)

FIGURE 1.

Increasing use of printed circuit boards in complex electronics


requires unique shielding solutions. Laird has developed a near
field measurement to accurately determine the effectiveness of
board-level shielding. Several Laird board-level shields have been
characterized using this technique.
Laird has further enhanced performance at greater than 2 GHz by
adding a microwave absorber to the board-level shield. Further
work has been completed on FlomericsTM FLO-EMC to analytically
investigate board-level shields performance improvement using
absorbers at high frequency.

THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE ABSORBERS


COOL-ZORB

VBROP can optimize absorber performance at various frequencies


and angles of incidence.

Laird is developing thermally conductive microwave absorbing


materials. These can be used as thermal pads between chips and
heatsinks, allowing conduction of heat and dissipation of EMI.
Initial testing and modeling has shown this to be an effective
solution to heat sink radiation from noisy chips.

MU EPSILON MEASUREMENT CAPABILITIES


Laird has a network analyzer to make amplitude and phase
measurements from 130 MHz to 20 GHz. Laird also has a
reflectivity arch, transmission tunnel and a variety of coaxial,
wave-guide and other test equipment to determine intrinsic
electrical properties of absorber materials. This ability has enabled
Laird to build a database that customers can use to design new
absorbers and analyze their performance in different situations.

ANALYTICAL SOFTWARE VBROP


VBROP is a versatile Windows 95/98/NT-based optimizer of
multi-layered stacks for reflection or maximum transmission at
specified frequencies, angle of incidence and polarization. The
visual basic front-end makes the software extremely user friendly,
with interactive analysis of layer properties versus performance. It is
useful for the design, optimization and detailed performance analysis
of RAM, RAS, radomes and microwave windows.
