Summary: 
Unwanted electromagnetic emission occurs due to the common-mode current on the cables entering a PC's metal enclosure and can be treated as wire antennas passing through the apertures of the enclosure. To reduce the emission, a stack of metal rings is suggested to be placed around the cable and external to the aperture, adopting the concept of a Coaxial Band-Stop Filter, for the first time. The influence of this novel structure on the common-mode current is examined in the FDTD-method frame work.
