Know How to Reduce EMI in PCBs with Faraday Cage

Electricity and magnetism are closely associated as the flow of current in a device forms an electromagnetic field around it. Also, a rotating magnetic field produces electric signals. However, the signals coming from two or more electronic devices in close vicinity produce EMI or electromagnetic interference, by mixed signals in each other’s spaces. This can…
