Standard Modifications Made Easy

Leader Tech understands that not all shielding applications can be satisfied with a standard CBS product. We also recognize that target budgets do not always accommodate a custom shielding solution. The Leader Tech Modified CBS gives you the flexibility to customize a standard CBS shield with significant savings compared to custom alternatives. Our Modified CBS products use existing tooling and manufacturing processes to give you a near-custom shielding solution at a fraction of the cost.

Features/Benefits:

  • Short lead time
  • Little or no NRE required (tooling cost)
  • Surface mount or through-hole design
  • Unrestricted perimeter sizes
  • Custom shapes to save space – rectangle, “T”, “L”, “Z”
  • Multi-cavity design flexibility
  • Multiple level design options
  • Strong cover retention using patented Leader Tech “fingers”
  • Removable cover for access to components
  • Grounding gaskets
  • I/O holes
  • Trace notches
  • Connector cutouts
  • Enhanced shielding with RF absorbers
  • ESD protection with insulator padding
