    Abstract: An EMI shielding composite film for use in printed circuit boards has at least two layers, a top layer electrically conductive in all directions (isotropic), and a bottom layer electrically conductive only in the Z (thickness) direction (anisotropic) after thermo-compression. The bottom layer is in contact with the grounding pads of the circuitry of the electronic device to be shielded. The conductive top layer functions similarly to metallic boxes to prevent the electromagnetic radiation from both entering the boxes and escaping into the environment. The bottom layer interconnects the top conductive layer to the grounding pads on the PCB after thermo-compression so that electromagnetic waves collected by the top layer are directed and released to PCB grounding pads through the bottom layer.

A signal pin, such as a signal pin within a probe card used to test electronic devices, such as integrated circuits, is shielded from interference signals, which are emitted from other signal pins within the probe card. Shielding the signal pin mitigates cross-talk issues and/or impendence control issues associated with signals that are carried by the signal pin. In one example, one or more shield pins are arranged with respect to the signal pin according to a shield configuration. For example, the shield configuration comprises a plane of signal pins, a substantially regular layout of signal pins, or a polygonal layout of signal pins, etc. In this way, one or more shield pins inhibit unintended interactions or effects that otherwise occur among two or more signal pins.
