USB 2.0 Jack with Integrated EMC Filter from Wurth Electronics

USB 2.0 Jack with Integrated EMC Filter  | In Compliance Magazine

Wurth Electronics offers a USB 2.0, type A jack, the WE-EPLE, the first and only USB jack 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 little 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 in the 20MHz range to an excess of 1GHz
  • Common-mode suppression at 240MHz in excess of 250
  • ESD suppression at levels of 10V at level 4 ESD pulses with 15kV.

The WE-EPLE, USB 2.0, type A jack, is compatible with the USB 2.0 standard.
