Abstract

In the electronics indushy, RFVEMI shielding is often a requirement in the design of a printed circuit boaid, functional module, or system. Many times shielding is required between two rigid parts, whether they are designed to mate to each other or not. In these instances, an electrically conductive material is required to fill the gaps between the rigid parts. Because of mechanical part tolerances, often the conductive material must be deformable. Often the rigid parts are designed to be brought out of their mating position and then back agajn, as in the case of a removable cover to a module hous- ing. In this application, a permanent set in the direction of compression of the gap-tilling material is not desirable.
