RF and EMI shielding is usually the ignored part of the design,
applied as a band aid to products and packages after many aspects of the design are completed. It should be designed in up-front to provide the most
advantageous designs (smaller, lighter, tighter), facilitate products
passing regulatory tests, and get to market faster. This talk will discuss a number of
innovative shielding solutions and
specific case studies. We will contrast older
methods of shielding (metal cans and conductive
paint on plastic) with a new EMI shielding material
based on the thin film metallization of thermoformed
- Speaker Biography:
Dr. Fabrizio Montauti has extensive senior level experience with microwave and
millimeter wave wireless equipment and network design. Prior to
joining WaveZero, he was VP of Marketing & Sales and VP Operations for
PointRed Technologies (San Jose, CA). He was responsible for market
development for a wireless communication system and was instrumental in
securing key sales contracts around the world. From 1999 to 2001, he
was co-Founder, Executive VP and COO for EESA (San Jose, CA), a
provider of high frequency synthesizers in the 2.4 GHz and 5.7 GHz
frequency ranges. From 1996 to 1999, he was Director of Engineering
for P-Com, Inc. (Campbell, CA), a public company focused on wireless
equipment and networks. He managed a team of 40 engineers working on
new wireless equipment and devices. For Siemens Telecommunications,
from 1989 to 1995, Dr. Montauti, worked as a Senior Designer on
microwave and millimeter wave modules for satellite communications. He
received his Doctor of Electronic Engineering at the Universita' degli
Studi di Pisa (Italy) in 1989. He has three patents in the field of
wireless equipment design and has published journal quality papers at
international conferences. WaveZero spoke at the IEEE's Oakland
East Bay (OEB) Chapter of the Communications Society in February
(See page 20 of the GRID).
