Designing for Minimal EMI

Designers of today’s smartphones, tablets and PCs are constantly balancing the constraints of small space to package components and increasing noise sensitivity. The difficulty in designing these products is compounded when trying to get the most from low level signals like those used to power an antenna while still protecting against incoming noise and noise emissions by meeting the strict requirements of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) regulations.

MD&M West and Expo Manufactura 2014

Faspro_MDM-West-2014We had a good experience at MD&M West this year. The convention lasted 3 days and we had a lot of prospects stop by our booth. Everyone was interested in our wide range of capabilities in cutting and forming sheet metal. The show itself had over 2,000 exhibitors and over 30,000 attendees. We are anticipating a lot of job opportunities for Faspro Technologies over the next year due to this convention, many of them involving our laser capabilities.

Battery Contacts

battery_contactBattery contacts are used in electronic devices as part of their internal circuitry to direct electrical current from the battery to internal components. Battery contacts are usually designed as two pieces of electrically conductive metal which allow electrical current to flow when the circuit is closed, and / or can insulate when the circuit is open. The battery contact material is often beryllium copper.

Board Level Shielding

Electromagnetic shielding used in a mobile phoneIn the fast changing world of mobile devices, the increased complexity of additional features and functionality has resulted in thinner devices with additional antennas and faster data exchange rates all operating at higher frequencies.

For device manufacturers, electro magnetic shielding including board level shielding is critical to proper operation of the product and in many cases is required to meet standards set by the FCC. EMI shielded boxes or RF shielded enclosures are designed as part of the shielding systems used to prevent the internal components from interfering with other components in the same device or components in devices within close proximity. Certain industries like Medical and Automotive need to prevent electro magnetic interference from affecting the operation of their product, as failure could result in injury or death.

Internal Antennas for Electronic Devices

Faspro Technologies is a leader in design and manufacture of internal antennas for use in electronic handheld devicesInternal antennas found in electronic devices like cell phones have limitations due to limited space within the device and the federal electromagnetic radiation exposure requirements; that dictate the amount of electromagnetic radiation users of the device can be exposed to. Factors affecting how well an internal antenna perform are the power of the transmitter and how well the electromagnetic radiation are shielded. Of course, antenna designs that incorporate effective RF and EMI shielding can increase effective power and stay within the federal requirements.
