Board Level Shielding (BLS) Overview

Board level shielding (BLS) One and Two-Piece
Board level shields
As mobile device complexity and functionality increases, there is a growing need for thinner devices with multiple antennas, higher data rates and increased operating frequencies.

EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) shields from TE Connectivity (TE) are stamped one and two-piece metal cages that help provide isolation of board level components, minimize crosstalk and reduce EMI susceptibility without impacting system speed.

Although we use standardized materials and offer common design features and options, every BLS product is a custom project. The BLS Design Request Form helps us understand your specific requirements quickly and efficiently. Please fill out the form or Contact Us for more information and a member of the TE Connectivity team will respond to you shortly.
