EMI, or Electromagnetic Interference, is an electronic emission that can cause interference with electronic components, RF systems, and other important equipment. This interference can be generated by electronic devices, communications signals, static electricity, and electromagnetic frequencies. It is also commonly known as Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). When it comes to electronic products and other items, EMI can be a huge burden.

That’s why preventing electromagnetic interference (EMI) is crucial in maintaining electronic performance. When the level of noise surpasses the strength of signals, it leads to a low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), causing errors, data loss, delayed or incorrect readings, or even temporary shutdowns. Therefore, it is essential to minimize EMI as much as possible.
