USB 2.0 filter connectors come with ESD protection, noise suppression

April 20, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Luso Electronics is now stocking Elec & Eltek's high-speed USB 2.0 Type A filter connectors designed to provide improved PCB design flexibility, suppress noise from data and power lines.

The connectors deliver reliable Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection to protect sensitive semiconductor components from damage due to Cable Discharge Events (CDE). This jack offers developers a drop-in replacement for existing USB 2.0 connectors, integrating the Filter and ESD protection, this reduces the board space required without a costly redesign. Particularly useful for highly advanced audio, video and data transmission products, the MD-R0124F filter connectors are suitable alternatives to standard USB 2.0 Type A connectors where better ESD protection (complying with IEC61000-4-2 specification) and elimination of signal interference is required while ensuring high data speed data transfer of up to 480 MBit/s.
With phosphor bronze contacts and gold plating and shield material made from brass with nickel-plating, the MD-R0124F has an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
