What is included with this book?


With electromagnetic compliance (EMC) now a major factor in the design of all electronic products, it is crucial to understand how electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding products are used in various industries. Focusing on the practicalities of this area, Advanced Materials and Design for Electromagnetic Interference Shieldingcomprehensively introduces the design guidelines, materials selection, characterization methodology, manufacturing technology, and future potential of EMI shielding.After an overview of EMI shielding theory and product design guidelines, the book extensively reviews the characterization methodology of EMI materials. Subsequent chapters focus on particular EMI shielding materials and component designs, including enclosures, metal-formed gaskets, conductive elastomer and flexible graphite components, conductive foam and ventilation structures, board-level shielding materials, composite materials and hybrid structures, absorber materials, grounding andcable-level shielding materials, and aerospace and nuclear shielding materials. The last chapter presents a perspective on future trends in EMI shielding materials and design.Offering detailed coverage on many important topics, this indispensable book illustrates the efficiency and reliability of a range of materials and design solutions for EMI shielding.
