Abstract

With the advent of smaller, more ergonomic radios, unique parts are inevitably designed into the radios. Within the realm of unique parts, shields become odd shaped with irregular edges. This is done to accommodate unusual board geometries due to screw bosses, board interconnects, etc. To decrease the problems associated with EMI and RFI, these shields become larger. A shield was designed for an LMPS product that was beyond the robotic placement machine's capability, see Figure 1.
