Ferrite materials offer frequency dependent magnetic properties. Ferrite is commonly used in applications in which electromagnetic interference is being suppressed. As an electronic component ferrite can be found as frequency dependent impedance or inductance. At power cables and data lines ferrite is being applied to create line filters. Ferrite is also being used to shield components from radiating and inductive fields.
In radio applications ferrite is being used to absorb radio waves. The ferrite tiles are mounted within, for example, an anechoic chamber.
