Minimize Interference with Die-Cut 3M EMI/RFI Solutions

With an increasing amount of connected electronics in industries ranging from automotive to medical equipment and even consumer appliances, today’s designs require robust EMI/RFI protection. This webinar will arm engineers with a go-to material list, process selection tools, and converted tape solutions that can used both early in the design phase and during late stage prototyping to solve electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) driven design changes quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively.

It's an increasingly connected world. The Internet of Things (IoT), 4G and 5G infrastructure, and human-machine interface (HMI) have created a myriad of benefits for consumers and a wealth of design challenges for engineers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) can cause EMI noise, crosstalk, low signal-to-noise ratio, poor signal reception, higher error rates, and slower communication speeds, negatively impacting sensitive analog circuits and sensors. Higher frequencies, increased RF frequencies and increasingly complex products compound the challenge.

Engineers are faced with the difficult task of reducing interference.

"Minimize Interference with Die-Cut 3M EMI/RFI Solutions," a webinar prepared in collaboration between JBC Technologies and 3M Electronics Materials Solutions Division (EMSD) arms engineers with information they can use to solve EMI shielding, grounding, and bonding challenges, fix electronic buzz, squeak and rattle, and meet EMC design standards.

We will provide application-specific examples, explain why conductive filler type and particle density matters, and share an easy four-step selection process that attendees can use to create a cheat sheet of the best 3M™ Electrically Conductive Tapes for their specific applications. We'll also demonstrate the breadth of what is possible using advanced die-cutting technology and converter capabilities.

Key Takeaways

  • Recognize where and how electrically conductive tapes can be used to shield sensitive analog circuits and sensors against high frequencies
  • Understand how to use 3M™ Electrically Conductive Tapes for EMI shielding and grounding to minimize EMI/RFI interference - and why many engineers prefer a 3M tape to redesigning an electrical system
  • Learn an easy 4-step process for selecting the best material for EMI shielding and grounding
  • Create a cheat sheet of go-to materials for your specific applications
  • Discover the role that an experienced Converter can play in creating a custom EMI/RFI solution that is optimized for maximum value.
