The most cost-effective EMC solution KGS offers is the OG series on-board EMC grounding contact. The small profiles and spring-action contacts are uniquely designed by KGS engineers. They’re on a tape-and-reel format and can be easily pick-and-placed on the PCB during assembly. While it’s best to design-in the grounding contact during PCB design, it can sometimes be incorporated onto the board afterwards (without re-spinning the board). KGS’ OG series have been incorporated into very small devices (like mobile phones and digital cameras) to larger applications (such as industrial equipment and automobiles).
Pigtail wires are fairly common for grounding, but it should be noted that this can be considered insufficient grounding due to high inductance. Since higher frequencies typically flow on the surface of a ground wire, increasing the surface area of the ground ensures effective noise reduction. Using a low inductance grounding strap like GFGST and FGM series is an effective way to ground noise.
