Luso Electronics offers developers a drop-in replacement for existing USB 2.0 connectors designed for highly advanced audio, video and data transmission products. Compared to standard USB 2.0 Type A connectors, the new connectors are claimed to offer better ESD protection and elimination of signal interference, and also ensure high data speed data transfer of up to 480 MBit/s.
According to the announcement, “the new MD-R0124F Filter connectors from Elec & Eltek are designed to provide improved PCB design flexibility, suppress noise from data and power lines, and deliver reliable Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection (complying with IEC61000-4-2 specification) to protect sensitive semiconductor components from damage due to Cable Discharge Events (CDE).”
Operating at a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the connectors are ideal for commercial and industrial USB applications. These connectors feature phosphor bronze contacts and gold plating and shield material made from brass with nickel-plating.
“Luso is delighted to make Elec & Eltek’s USB2.0 Filter Connectors more widely available to customers in Europe. ESD protection is a critical component of electronics design given it only takes one ESD strike to permanently damage a product. Electromagnetic interference is another challenge often faced by designers so jacks that can also eliminate noise and maintain signal integrity are also growing in popularity,” explains Andy Eden of Luso Electronics.
The MD-R0124F and a full range of integrated connector modules from Elec & Eltek are available to buy from Luso Electronics.
