USB 2.0 Jack with Integrated EMC Filter

Filter design is tricky, as shown by numerous practical examples, particularly with the USB interface in industrial applications.

Würth Elektronik eiSos offers the WE-EPLE USB 2.0 type A jack, the first and only USB jack worldwide with an integrated EMC filter and ESD protection. It is pad-compatible with most conventional USB jacks and the dimensions also stay the same! Existing designs are transformed into EMC-compatible designs in no time.

The integrated EMC filter eliminates broadband interference on voltage and signal lines, and at the same time is almost invisible for the signal lines.

This means:

  • Vcc filter impedance above 100 Ω in the 20 MHz range to far in excess of 1 GHz
  • Common-mode suppression at 240 MHz far in excess of 250 Ω
  • ESD suppression at levels of low 10 V at level 4 ESD pulses with 15 kV.

The WE-EPLE USB 2.0 type A jack is compatible with the USB 2.0 standard. Samples are free upon request and all components can be shipped ex warehouse.
