Shock Control White Paper Available
Shock Control for Portable Electronics, a white
paper created by E-A-R Specialty Composites, is a systematic
review of the underlying science of shock and damping that
brings designers of portable electronics up to speed on how
to approach shock control in small multi-featured electronics
The paper reviews relationships of drop height, floor surfaces,
product materials and other factors to shock events. Useful
equations for using the shock transmissibility spectra for
varying shock inputs and damping situations are included,
among other formulas that help determine best approaches to
damping. Examples from PC designs, hard drives, and LCD protection
are used to illustrate the relative benefits of highly damped
elastomer materials in protecting portable electronics during
shock events. Design tips on how to best incorporate effective
damped mounts into product designs are also covered.
