Abstract

A reinforcing splint between electromagnetic shields on a printed wiring board can significantly reduce the bending strain in the board area within the shields, especially at locations near the shield boundaries linked by the splint. This strain reduction improves the reliability of handheld products subjected to keypress and drop.
