November 25, 2013 – Laird, a global technology company, today announced the release of a new Ultra-Low Height Two-Piece Board-Level Shield. This new product offers an innovative, patent pending EMI shielding solution for compact electronics with tight space requirements.  

The Ultra-Low Height Two-Piece Board-Level Shield incorporates a frame with drawn latch features that accommodates an assembly height as low as 1 mm. “This advanced design offers an ideal solution for board-level EMI shielding applications in which access to the shielded components is required and conserving space between a densely populated printed circuit board (PCB) and compact enclosure is critical”, says Allan Dukeshire, product manager for Laird. “With the increased focus on smaller and thinner products, this new solution enables our customers to meet the growing market demand for increasingly miniaturized electronic devices.” 

The patent pending drawn latch design allows for simplified tooling and tighter tolerances, which enhances structural rigidity while preserving co-planarity. The frame’s drawn latch engages with openings in the cover and allows for removable attachment to the frame. The cover may be attached to, detached from, and subsequently reattached to the frame in confined areas without interfering with other electrical components mounted on the PCB outside the frame. 

As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective EMI Solutions, Laird provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional grounding and shielding performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the automotive electronics, handset & mobile devices, industrial, medical, military, IT/Computing and consumer markets.
