EMC Requirement for LCD modules

  1. 'cept the fact there's a window, which has to be exposed for most
    applications, that has large area of conductive patterns on it that
    is/are energized with AC?

    Hi all

    Anybody has any experience in EMC requirements for LCD modules.

    I am currently working on a project that uses an LCD module with a
    builtin Hymax HX8238 controller. I am trying to figure out how much
    EMI/ESD mitigation I need down the line. It's got a grounded metal
    frame so I am assuming that is enough as a basic ESD protection for
    the module itself. The only thing I am worried about is down the
    ribbon cables.

    Any help would be great.

  3. A ferrite "bead" shaped to fit the cable will help o limit the higher-
    frequency stuff coming out of the display down the cables. I have
    also seen ribbon cables looped two or more times through a ferrite

    The radiated emissions out the front of the display will be harder to
    control. Transparent but conductive layer like indium tin-oxide coated
    sheet may help, or use a fine metal mesh if the Moire patterns are not
    too objectionable.

    I had two recent cases and fixed it with meshes from this company:

    Not cheap but gives the unit almost a mil-spec appeal. I had to rotate
    to 45 degrees to avoid too much moiree. After it's all spec'd out
    they'll offer custom cuts. Hint: Don't ever pull on this stuff, it'll
    stretch and then bulge very easily.

    There's nothing special about LCDs.

    How much do you know about EMC to begin with ?

    Oh, what market is this for ? US regs are as ever different to the rest
    of the world.

    And are you more concerned about emissions or susceptibility ?

    I have had a bit of experience with EMC for SMPS. Those where usually
    sperate from the system load. This is the first time I need to combine
    power and system load.
    The ferrite clamp would have been a good idea. I looked into a bit,
    there isn't enough space to put something like that into the
    enclosure. I am thinking of using a EMIF10-LCD from ST. That should
    provide filtering, I just need to make sure I do need filtering

    That's very different.

    Why not answer the questions I asked ? I might be able to help then.
