Metallized plastic materials are suitable in housing many types of devices as they can be thermoformed into virtually any shape and are considerably lighter than most metal alloys while providing shielding effectiveness comparable to that of metals. There are three potential problems that cause EMI: source radiating noise, receiver picking up noise, and coupling channel between source and receiver. All wireless transmitting devices are vulnerable to EMI from nearby radiating sources. These include laptop computers and cellular phones operating in the surrounding area.
