Disclosed is a method which minimizes Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) radiation in a low cost manner without jeopardizing the ability to install and change feature modules in a simple manner. No hard attachments, such as screws, between the pluggable modules and the faceplate are need (Fig. 1). Application is pluggable modules mounted through a faceplate (part of the system chassis electrical EMI containment enclosure) on a tight pitch and residing on opposite sides of a carrier PC board. Copper cables shown as twinax plug in to exposed ends of the pluggable module to form links with other boxes.
