Abstract

Disclosed is a scheme to integrate the EMI (Electro-magnetic Interference) filtering feature into a serpent connector assembly. This is essentially done by incorporating a split ferrite core into a molded extension of the connector housing. The molded extension forms a hinged housing with openings on each end such that a cable from the connector passes through the housing. Each half of the split ferrite core may be placed in the hinged housing on each side of the cable, and the hinged housing closed and latched by a molded in latch, to form a compact and neat package.

Serpent Assembly With Ferrite Core

      Disclosed is a scheme to integrate the EMI (Electro-magnetic
Interference) filtering feature into a serpent connector assembly.
This is essentially done by incorporating a split ferrite core into a
molded extension of the connector housing.  The molded extension
forms a hinged housing with openings on each end such that a cable
from the connector passes through the housing.  Each half of the
split ferrite core may be placed in the hinged housing on each side
of the cable, and the hinged housing closed and latched by a molded
in latch, to form a compact and neat package.

      This provides an optimum package which permanently holds the
two halves of the ferrite core with proper strain relief, thus
reducing the cable assembly concerns as well as the damage potential.

      This concept is applicable to new connector variations required
for future applications.
