Why EMI / ESD shielding is important in a membrane keyboard?

Posted on March 3, 2021March 3, 2021Categories Uncategorized   Leave a comment on Why EMI / ESD shielding is important in a membrane keyboard?

The trend to miniaturized electronic devices has made appliance controls more vulnerable to electrostatic discharge (ESD) from human operators. Membrane switches increase the chances of damage since the thin membrane provides less isolation than traditional full-travel switches. As the membrane keyboard is an interface between man & machine, there is a good chance that the static energy from human body will discharge while operating the keyboard. The body is charged with negative electrons. When these electrons come into contact with … Continue reading “Why EMI / ESD shielding is important in a membrane keyboard?”
