Laird Technologies Introduces New Poron Conductive Fabric Gaskets for Use in Handheld Devices
Products Improve LCD Cushioning, EMI Safeguarding
ST. LOUIS, MO. USA - (May 1, 2006) - Laird Technologies, a leading designer and manufacturer of electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, thermal management, telematics and wireless antenna solutions, introduced today its new cost-effective PORON® Conductive Fabric (PCF) gaskets for liquid crystal display (LCD) cushioning and EMI protection in handheld monitoring devices.
The gaskets are RoHS compliant EMI shields comprised of Rogers PORON, Laird Technologies proprietary fabric and conductive adhesive. This combination creates an atmosphere favorable to LCD cushioning and EMI security for mobile phones, PDAs, GPS receivers, barcode scanners and graphic tablets.
"By providing both cushioning and EMI protection, Laird Technologies' PORON Conductive Fabric gaskets reduce the number of needed parts," said Joe Chen, global product director, Laird Technologies. "They also eliminate the need for a high-cost stamping tool that traditionally slows down production lines. The PCF gaskets help decrease customers' time to market while lowering costs, all while answering the requirements of the industry."
The unique PCF design also reduces the weight of handheld products since it replaces the conventional metal stamping frame. PCF gaskets can be die-cut specifically to fit underneath the LCD screen in handheld devices. Likewise, standard roll sizes are 500mm wide by 50 meters in length. PCF gaskets are obtainable now at an average cost of 10 cents for a 3cm x 3cm die-cut part. Other sizes are available.
PORON is a licensed trademark of the Rogers Corporation, a manufacturer of specialty materials for use in wireless communications, computers, consumer products and other electronic products
