EMI Gaskets are selected and used by the electrical/electronic
industry to meet compliance with stipulated EMI/EMC requirements.
Choosing a low cost solution is also a factor. Gaskets can also
be used as a basic method for saving money when manufacturing a
system. The intent of an effective gasket is not only to maximize
EMI/RFI shielding, but to also reduce the number of fasteners (or
screws) needed to comply with requirements.
