1) EMI Shielding
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is a disturbance that affects an electrical circuit due to either electromagnetic induction or electromagnetic radiation emitted from an external source. The disturbance passes through the air and may interrupt, obstruct, degrade or limit the effective performance and proper operation of the equipment. This is one of the key reasons EMI testing and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing are performed.
Following EMI shielding regulations (CISPR22), it is mandatory for electronic devices to comply with EMI shielding standards. Circuits should be designed to both minimize the amount of electromagnetic radiation that it generates and also to withstand EMI from the environment. This can be successfully achieved with SANTE® EMI Shielding Films.
Performance of SANTE® EMI Shielding Films
SANTE® EMI Shielding Films provide up to 55dB shielding as tested under ASTM method.
Applications for SANTE® EMI Shielding Films
SANTE® EMI Shielding Films can be used for shielding in:
- Consumer electronics – displays and touch panels
- Industrial instruments and controls
- Medical devices
- Defense-related equipment
Key Advantages of SANTE® EMI Shielding Films
SANTE® EMI Shielding Films provide excellent shielding performance and possesses the following outstanding features:
SANTE® films provide conductivity of <10ohms/sq, replacing conventional ITO material.
SANTE® films provide high transparency and color neutrality for display, touch, and other applications requiring EMI shielding.
SANTE® films are highly durable and able to endure multiple flexing, torsion and tension while maintaining its conductivity.
SANTE® films can withstand harsh weather conditions, from -30°C to 80°C thermal shock and 95% relative humidity.
The unique random mesh-like pattern of the SANTE network eliminates moiré issues.
2) Large Format Touch Screens
With the increased adoption of touchscreen displays in computers, tablets, gaming consoles, smartphones, cameras, public kiosks and other applications today, the global industry for touchscreen has witnessed substantial growth. The introduction of the Apple iPhone in 2007 has revolutionized the touch industry, and today, keeping up with demands for multi-touch products that are highly responsive, interactive and intuitive is key to staying competitive in the electronics industry.
SANTE® FS200 Touch Films is an industry leading ITO replacement with high transparency and conductivity, enabling large format multi-touch displays and other advanced touch technologies that require faster touch response.
SANTE® FS200 Touch Films are compatible with all touchscreen structures
- Repositionable OCA-Film-Film
SANTE® FS200 Touch Films can also be used as a companion to ITO-on-Glass:
- Lower cost & weight by eliminating glass-glass ITO stacks
- Boost yield by replacing ITO film layer
- Increase touchscreen size capabilities by reducing surface resistance on drive-layer and simplifying the manufacturing process
SANTE® FS200 Touch Films are also compatible with other lens material:
- Direct transfer to polycarbonate/PMMA/PET
- Direct coating on polycarbonate/PMMA
- Reduced weight
- Reduced cost
Touchscreen Pattern Considersation
Touch module manufacturers have the freedom to determine their preferred touchscreen pattern as our touch films are compatible with the classic two-layer diamond pattern, bar and strip pattern and single-layer backgammon pattern.
Etching can be done using both dry (laser) and wet (printed resist/DFR) methods.
3) Transparent Heaters
Transparent heaters are visually transparent substrates with electrically conductive coatings. They are typically used for anti-fogging, anti-icing and de-icing of optics and optical displays. Some of the diverse applications include outdoor LCD displays, LED headlamps in automotives, traffic lights, windows, mirrors, camera lenses, touch screens and any others that require light or visual transmittance in cold and moist environments.
SANTE® films are ideal transparent heaters as it has much faster heating rates than ITO-based transparent heaters.
Key Advantages of SANTE® Transparent Heaters
- Highly Conductive
- Uniform Heating
- Color Neutrality
- Resistance Tolerance
