Shielding Is Our Specialty

Board Level Shields (BLS) are designed to help optimize protection while meeting application requirements. EMI shields can be sealed with a one -piece, two - piece or Multizone metal cage.

BLS provide isolation of board-level components, minimize crosstalk and reduce EMI susceptibility without impacting the systems speed.

3G offers a complete lineup of standard and custom board level shielding products. Our comprehensive selection of the one-piece, two –piece, and Multizone shields are available in both surface mount and through-hole styles.

By utilizing 3G’s unlimited design flexibility and many standard features, engineers have the ability to modify or customize board level shielding to solve any application. Our expert engineers join your team to develop your Board Level Shield solution.

3G is where customization is standard.

There are many reason why to choose 3G as your board level shield supplier.

We offer unlimited design with a variety of different material options to best suite your unique design shielding needs. We offer many different surface mount and pin styles ensuring the most effective shielding performance. We avoid any thermal shadowing by offering ventilation holes on either the top or side of the application.

For any application that require automation, we have excellent shielding performance available in tape and reel, also known as our PIC-IT shield.

Shielding in our everyday lives...

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) also called radio-frequency interference (RFI), is a disturbance produced by an external source that affects an electrical circuit. EMI can disrupt electronic devices, equipment, and systems that are used in critical applications.  A few examples of everyday industries include medical, military, and aerospace electronics, mass transit systems, industrial touch screens, and navigation and vehicular control systems. The causes of EMI are numerous, and include both man-made and natural sources. EMI shielding gaskets are mechanical devices that help protect electronics from electromagnetic interference.

The 3G system has been proven in hundreds of wireless devices used in applications such as GPS, WLAN, Last Mile & Broadband Access, PDAs and Remote Asset Management. This advanced RF/EMI shielding systems is in use today for a number of Central Office and Wireless Base Station applications, enabling superior RF performance in a variety of demanding environments. Chances are that if you are using a wireless communication network, you are relying on circuitry protected by 3G Shielding Solutions.

We provide PCB shielding solutions to leading base stations and access point manufacturers, operating in a wide cross-section of frequencies and technologies. From indoor-based coverage enhancement to outdoor-mounted high-speed networks, we offer comprehensive solutions for wireless network access points. Our multi-cavity solutions enable the tightest physical configurations possible while providing the required performance levels for long-life and reliable operation.

We support central office or end-user devices such as wireless or satellite modems, precision GPS receivers, wireless terminals, wireless routers, radio modules, test instruments, marine transmitters, scientific devices, and any other electronic appliances requiring PCB-level shielding for performance or compliance reasons.
