Laird Technologies presents EMI Gemini product family for EMI shielding

ST. LOUIS, 14 Nov. 2009. Laird Technologies Inc., a designer and manufacturer of customized, performance-critical components for wireless systems and other advanced electronics applications, has released its new family of multi-extrusion shielding gaskets, EMI Gemini. The new EMI Gemini product line is a convergence of a thin, electrically-conductive filler elastomer gasket layer and an inner, non-conductive, silicone-coated core gasket, explains a company representative.

ST. LOUIS, 14 Nov. 2009. Laird Technologies Inc., a designer and manufacturer of customized, performance-critical components for wireless systems and other advanced electronics applications, has released its new family of multi-extrusion shielding gaskets, EMI Gemini.

The new EMI Gemini product line is a convergence of a thin, electrically-conductive filler elastomer gasket layer and an inner, non-conductive, silicone-coated core gasket, explains a company representative.

The conductive material portion of the gasket, usually loaded with silver, aluminum, nickel, or copper, is reduced due to the substitution of the silicone core. The reduction of the conductive material lowers the total cost. Extruded in various sizes and profiles, the gasket retains strong EMI protection performance with a lower deflection, while sealing against environmental influences, such as moisture and dust.

"The EMI Gemini multi-extrusion elastomer gasket raises the bar on the industry standard for EMI shielding," says Scott Stephan, Laird Technologies EMI product director. "It is a more cost-effective solution because it uses fewer precious metals while optimizing performance."

The EMI Gemini product line is targeted at military, medical, and commercial applications requiring application-specific, high-shielding requirements.
