Removable Shield Cuts Board-Level EMI

The aptly named ReCovr board-level shield (BLS) from Laird Technologies is a patented shielding solution that offers the functionality of a two-piece shield without the need for a separate frame and cover. The shield is designed with a locking mechanism that allows for easy removal when access to components within a housing is required. According to John Noto, Laird Technologies Americas EMI Metals Product Manager, "The locking mechanism of this new design complements the functional configuration of two-piece board-level shielding in a one-piece type configuration. These shields eliminate the need to hand assemble the covers after soldering by providing a simple replacement technique for the cover." Snapping off the shield cover is accomplished by using a small starter hole for simple removal. After repair, replacement, or adjustment of internal components, the same shield cover is then snapped back in place.
