Products (44) Overview
board level shielding (bls)

Reduce, Limit, and Control EMI

Due to a growing need for thinner devices with multiple antennas, higher data rates, and increased operating frequencies, modern mobile devices require better solutions for reducing or limiting the effect of electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Board level shielding EMI shields from TE are stamped one-piece and two-piece metal cages that help provide isolation of board level components, minimize crosstalk, and reduce EMI susceptibility without impacting system speed. Now offering an on-demand standard BLS portfolio, we also offer common design features and options for every customized BLS project in order to fit your exacting design requirements. Complete the Custom BLS Design form (see link above), and a member of the TE team will respond shortly.

NEW

Standard BLS Portfolio

Our brand new standard portfolio of shields is tooled, available and in stock so you can quickly get the parts you need to minimize crosstalk and reduce EMI susceptibility in your application. In addition to cold rolled steel (CRS) material, our standard portfolio includes aluminum material options which are 1/3 the density of CRS. This offers extreme weight savings while still offering similar EMI suppression. Aluminum options also provide up to 5 times better heat dissipation than CRS.
