A built-in ferrite filter reduces common mode noise in Regal Electronics’ new mini-din connector

Regal Electronics Adds Noise Reducing Ferrite Filter Option to its Line of Mini-Din Connectors

Sunnyvale, CA — Regal Electronics, Inc. has added a filtering option to its line of mini-din connectors.  The ferrite filter is for common mode (conducted) noise rejection.  The addition of common mode noise reduction provides design engineers a broad range of performance options available with Regal’s mini-din connectors, such as shielding and gaskets for tough EMI environments, and now filtering to reduce common mode noise.

The new Regal mini-din connector reduces common mode noise by integrating an optional ferrite filter right into the connector base.  In addition to reducing common mode noise before it enters the connector assembly, there are the added benefits of controlled insertion loss and higher reliability because there are no solder joints to fail.

Typical applications include data communication terminals and digital devices.

The new Regal filtered mini-din connectors are available for prototype applications through Regal’s “Quick Ship” program: Orders in by 4:00 p.m. are shipped the same day, as are the majority of Regal’s connector, speaker and related components.  Low to mid-range quantity orders are welcome.
