Printed Circuit Board (CPB) area is at a premi- urn in today's competitive size and cost driven wire- less markets. In addition to size, time to market plays a critical role in the success of radio products. One of the design obstacles that impacts both the size and time is proper shielding. Shielding is one of the most difftcult and time consuming issues in radio product development. This invention allows for more effective use of PCB space to be utilized in component layouts by reducing the area used by sol- der down shields thus resulting in smaller radio products.
