The economical High Frequency PCB Filter offers electrical characteristics which allow many devices to meet most government and industry specifications for EMI control, while providing good electrostatic discharge protection.
A lossy ferrite filter with a center ground lead is terminated within the filter’s thermoset epoxy body.
The High Frequency PCB Filter offers savings three ways. First is the low cost of the filter assembly. Second is the economy of installation. Three silver plated leads are inserted into holes in a printed circuit board which has a ground path circuit, for conventional flows-soldering with other components. No special mounting plate or brackets are needed and when the holes are placed as recommended in a .062 (1.57mm) thick board, no lead trimming is required. Elimination of hand soldering provides opportunities for improved quality in addition to applied-cost benefits.
A third savings results from placing a filter at the source of an EMI problem, potentially eliminating the need for additional filtering at other points in the circuit.
