The effect of single aperture metallic enclosures on electrical shielding effectiveness (ESE) has been investigated. Simulations and measurements have been obtained for comparison. The effects of orientation of transmitting antenna (source orientation) with respect to aperture length have been studied at 2.60?9 GHz as a novelty, and this gives details of IC RF source orientation in an enclosure. In the case of square apertures on an enclosure, a higher ESE value is obtained with respect to a rectangular aperture. As a case study, when the aperture width of the enclosure is decreased from 75 to 18.75 mm, the frequency bandwidth of ESE with vertical orientation becomes higher. In other words, while the area of the aperture is fixed, decreasing aperture width increases ESE for vertical orientation. In the next case, ESE with vertical orientation is better at 34.37%, 71.87%, and 99.98% of the full frequency range than the horizontal one while the ratio of aperture length/width is 1, 4, and 16, respectively. It has been found that the vertical orientation of sources with respect to aperture-length orientation is predominant for the horizontal orientation of it on ESE performance.
