The SMS series of printed-circuit-board (PCB) electromagnetic-interference (EMI) shields has been expanded with the addition of 30 new shielding styles and sizes. The expanded shielding structures are constructed of tin-plated steel or Alloy 770 materials as a cost-effective shielding option for many automated pick-and-place circuit assembly processes and large-volume manufacturing processes. The EMI shields provides as much as 60-dB shielding effectiveness (SE) for circuit boards that do not require ventilation holes in the shielding covers. Samples of the unvented shields are available for shipment in as little as 24 hours.
