Nexperia introduces industry’s fastest Common Mode Filters with Integrated ESD Protection for Super Speed USB

Widest differential passband; high surge robustness and low clampingNijmegen, December 3, 2019: Nexperia, the expert in discrete and MOSFET components and analog & logic ICs, today announced the market’s fastest common mode filter (choke)/ ESD protection combination. The new PCMFxUSB3BA/C features the industry’s widest differential passband of up to 10 GHz 3dB frequency and a very high surge robustness of up to 7.5 A 8/20 µs. It is designed to suppress common mode and single-ended noise while minimizing the impact on the signal integrity of extremely fast data lines. Developed to meet the requirements of Super Speed USB applications, the new devices provide effective 1, 2 & 3 line pair protection (Tx +/-, Rx +/-, D +/-) and filtering. Proven for 10 Gbps communications line protection, the filter’s system-level robustness exceeds the IEC 61000-4-2 level 4, suiting them for use with sensitive SoCs. The solution also minimizes reflections when compared to a discrete design. The integration of Nexperia’s TrEOS technology results in low clamping and high robustness. PCMFxUSB3BA/C extends Nexperia’s family of Common Mode Filters (PCMF devices), helping to optimize the choice between differential pass-band and common-mode rejection at signal fundamentals and higher harmonics. Comments Stefan Seider, Product Manager, Nexperia: “Apart from their capability to reduce EMI, Common Mode Filters with ESD protection are also very popular for their efficiency in protecting sensitive transceivers: They add an impedance to the signal line pair, which is very small for differential signals but shows significant attenuation of common mode noise as well as single-ended transients such as ESD.” The new PCMF filters are available in very low-inductance, space-saving WLCSP packages. Devices are footprint-compatible with available ESD-only solutions for fast design changes.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

Effortless USB-C Battery Charging with MAX77860

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

Designing USB Type C into your design requires a bit more attention than previous generations. With all the benefits USB Type C brings - reversible plugs, more power, and higher bandwidth, it also demands more engineering inside our devices. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Sagar Khare of Maxim Integrated about the requirements of USB Type C, and how the MAX77860 can help you meet them.
