Method for an RJ45 with integrated magnetics and an RJ11

Disclosed is a method for an RJ45 connector with integrated magnetics and an RJ11 connector. Benefits include improved functionality and improved performance.

Background

        � � � � � A requirement exists for both an RJ45 local area network (LAN) port connector and an RJ11 modem connector on the rear panel of small form-factor systems.

        � � � � � The space restrictions presented by the small form-factor systems require a reconfiguration of the rear panel I/O connectors to provide the same functionality as current ATX and micro-ATX systems. The conventional way of offering the RJ11 modem port requires using a PCI card slot. However, on the smallest form factor (5L) chassis, only two expansion slots are available and customers want both of them to be available for usage.

        � � � � � Conventionally, the RJ45 LAN connector is offered on the rear panel I/O of both ATX and micro-ATX form factors by using an RJ45 connector over a 2.0 USB connector. The RJ11 is offered separately from the RJ45 via a PCI card in one of the PCI slots. This solution works for ATX and micro-ATX form factors because they offer a minimum of three available expansion slots.

General description

        � � � � � The disclosed method is an RJ45 LAN connector with integrated magnetics for filtering and an RJ11 connector in one housing.

        � � � � � The key elements of the method include:

•        � � � � RJ45 and RJ11 connectors located in the same housing

•        � � � � Optiona...
