Claim of US Patent No. 10,091,918

1. An apparatus for providing conformal shielding, comprising:a circuit board;
a plurality of circuit components mounted on the circuit board; and
a plurality of shielded compartments connected to the circuit board, each of the plurality of shielded compartments encompassing one or more circuit components of the plurality of circuit components, wherein each of the plurality of shielded compartments comprises a molding material, at least one shielding wall within a portion of the molding material, and a shielding material layer disposed on at least a portion of the molding material and configured to electrically coupled with a portion of the at least one shielding wall, wherein for each of the plurality of shielded compartments, the shielding material layer is disposed on a top surface and a side surface of the molding material of the shielded compartment, and wherein the molding material encompasses at least a portion of the body of at least one circuit component and is integrally formed on the circuit board with the at least one shielding wall;
wherein each of the plurality of shielded compartments is separated from an adjacent one of the shielded compartments by a space containing a conductive material adhered to at least one side of the shielded compartment and the adjacent shielded compartment.
