EZ-Shield Can EMC protection screening products from Harwin are available in kit form, enabling designers to rapidly construct PCB cans at minimal cost for development purposes.
Clip and Can advantages
Harwin’s EZ-Shield Cans are simply pressed onto pre-positioned surface mount EZ-Shield Clips forming an EMC cage around sensitive ICs and electronic circuitry. This saves expensive, labour-intensive secondary assembly and facilitates rework. A range of standard Can and Clips sizes are available. However, during development and test, typically engineers have had to order bespoke cans without being 100% certain of their eventual requirements, incurring costs and creating delays.
Now, a can may be created easily and effectively in minutes, with no special tools or experience required.
Simple and fast prototyping
The low-cost kit comprises two 80mm x 60mm x 0.3mm thick Nickel Silver sheets that are pre-scribed with a 5mm grid. This allows easy cutting and forming, enabling the user to produce a shield can of the required dimensions. Auto-placeable EZ-Shield Can Clips are also included, to hold the cans securely in place on the PCB.
