Component selectionDesign tips


The USB interface is probably the most widespread interface in the world, both in domestic and industrial environments. The USB 2.0 standard is a serial bus system with a maximum data rate of 480 Mbit/s.

Despite its widespread use, there are some points to consider when designing the application in order to achieve an EMC-compliant interface. Using suitable TVS diodes and current-compensated common-mode chokes for data lines, effective concepts can be developed to obtain non-critical circuits.
