Cases That Protect Against EMI: Part 2

Designed cases to shield electronics from EMI.
Aluminum case attenuates EMI, 8 to 12 GHz.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) can affect electronics, disrupting timing circuits and corrupting signals. If sufficiently powerful – perhaps a pulse from a nearby radar installation – it can induce damaging voltage surges in wiring. There’s even evidence of EMI damaging the read/write heads of hard drive storage units. Continue reading
