VTI Vacuum Technologies recently partnered with William D. Kimmel, PE (principal in the engineering consulting firm of Kimmel Gerke Associates) on a white paper that was written to educate people in related industries who aren’t familiar with how shielding works. The technical paper, EMC Shielding Simplified, explains the fundamentals of the EMC shielding process. The whitepaper discusses basic physics and concepts to ensure shielding effectiveness, as well as the shielding materials used. In addition, the artile details how to make shielding work properly, some typical shielding failures and how to solve those failures.
