●  Importance for Counteracting Growing Electromagnetic Noise

Smartphones have become increasingly indispensable in our daily lives, facilitating activities from online shopping to mobile banking. With over 5.5 billion smartphone users globally and a penetration rate exceeding 70%, the demand for further miniaturization and enhanced functionality continues to grow. Consequently, electronic components are being more densely packed, making it crucial to address electromagnetic noise generated within devices.

●  Achieves Smallest Footprint in Its Class with Full Armor Protection

EMC shielding and is designed with a small footprint, measuring only 0.35 mm in pitch, 0.6 mm in height, and 2.2 mm in depth. Despite its size, it is fully shielded to minimize electromagnetic noise interference. Capable of excellent RF signal transmission up to 40 GHz, its fully shielded structure provides enhanced EMI protection, offering superior performance in high-frequency applications. Additionally, the series supports high-speed data transmission up to 40Gbps and complies with standards such as USB4.0 Gen3x2 and PCIe Gen4, making it an innovative component for advancing mobile device technology.
