More projects using Altoids tin boxes as enclosures

Posted on Monday, September 17th, 2012 in cases by DP

In response to our “Disposable metal boxes make excellent shielded enclosures” app note post, Sverre shared some of his projects using the same enclosures. They are mostly RF projects, benefiting from the tin enclosure’s EMF protection.

Nice post which triggered me to picture some of my own Altoid projects.

    The first link seems to be missing the protocol and becomes a relative one.
