This paper compares the shielding performance or shielding effectiveness of gaskets for on-board applications when determined with either a stripline method or a reverberation room method. The shielding performance is considered in the frequency range from 1 up to 40 Ghz. Similar to PCB-level enclosures, gaskets for on-board applications differ significantly from other shielding products, therefore requiring an appropriate definition for their shielding effectiveness. It is shown by full-wave simulations that a 3rd order polynomial fit of the shielding effectiveness obtained with the stripline method correlates well with the shielding effectiveness obtained with a reverberation room method, in which case the shielding effectiveness is defined as the ratio between the radiated/received power with and without gasket.
