Measurements of Coupling through Braided Shield via New Conducted Immunity Technique

By Mahan Ghassempouri
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 11, 61-68, 2009


A new method for evaluating the performance of the shield and coupling through holes on braided shields is introduced. The method is based on conducted immunity test. A comparison is made between two kinds of shields, based on introduced technique. One is braided shields and the other is adhesive foil that does not contain any holes. The value of coupling through holes in braided shields is determined via a new technique.
