The Problem

    Up to now, the standard solution is to enclose noisy/noise sensitive components in shield cans. However...

  • They interfere with reflow thermal profile during assembly

  • They cover components, making cleaning, inspection, and rework problematic

  • They can have holes for thermal passage and cleaning, but these reduce EMI shielding integrity

  • They can have snap-on lids to permit cleaning, inspection, and limited rework

but the real bottom line is...

Shield cans just don't fit anymore
