5. Design Decisions Relating to EMC Shielding

When approaching the problem of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), design engineers often consider it to be a secondary issue that can be dealt with once the device is working and, after all, it can be dealt with by putting a metal box around it! But that places mechanical engineers in a tough position as they deal with constraints such as weight, cost, performance and corrosion. Discover our best design tips to help with EMI shielding DURING the design stage! Read now.

4. Best Conductive Plastics: Five Things to Look For

Can electrically conductive plastics really replace traditional metal electronics enclosures? The answer is a resounding yes! There are very effective electrically conductive plastics available today that provide excellent electromechanical properties that help shield portable electronics from the electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise that is proliferating our daily life.

Smart phones, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, radio, even your television are all susceptible to EMI. Discover the key points you may want to consider when evaluating electrically conductive plastics for your application. Read now.

3. The Difference Between Thermal Conductivity and Thermal Impedance

While not technically a blog about EMI shielding, thermal interface materials and EMI shielding generally go hand in hand. Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are useful for thermal management in electronic components, as they enhance heat transfer from a heat-generating component to a heat dissipater, or heat sink.

Across the industry, manufacturers often publish thermal conductivity in units of Watts / meter-Kelvin as well as thermal impedance in units of °C – inches2 / Watt on their datasheets. So, what is the difference between these two, and how should you consider them when selecting a TIM? Read on to find out!

2. Five Ways to Maximize Performance of Electric Vehicle Batteries 

Electric vehicles are developing fast in line with growing demand. However, only by selecting proven, reliable, high-quality products for the effective thermal management and EMI shielding of batteries, is it possible to maximize performance.

Discover how the EV market is changing the way we think about thermal dissipation and EMI shielding for automobiles now. Read more.

1. The Art of Spraying Electrically Conductive Paints

An oldie of a post – but clearly still a goodie! Electrically conductive coatings for plastic enclosure electromagnetic shielding are growing in popularity as concerns over weight increase for a variety of EMI applications in the military, aerospace, automotive, telecom, medical, and semiconductor marketplaces. However, conductive paints cannot be applied in the same way conventional paints are. Many first attempts do not go as well as planned. Learn more about how proper preparation and practice will make you successful in your application.
