Ferrite core filters are an excellent way to reduce noise on electrical cables. They can be used in different types of cables, such as audio and coaxial cables. These filters are typically mounted in plastic cases and snap on to the cable with one touch. They are particularly effective in counteracting common-mode noise.
In order to select the right filter for your application, you should consider the bandwidth of the filter and its impedance characteristics with respect to the dc bias current. Most manufacturers publish impedance curves for their products at 100 MHz. However, it is important to remember that the dc bias current is never zero. As a result, the filter parameters change dramatically when the bias current increases.
While ferrite core filters are an excellent choice for EMI suppression, they can be complex and require careful design. They are also effective in LC filters, source noise filtering, and ground-plane separation. EMI filtering with ferrite cores is an excellent way to reduce noise and improve the quality of your equipment.
Ferrite beads are also useful in protecting PCBs against EMI. They can help reduce the EMI emissions and absorption in PCB traces, which act as antennas at high frequencies. In addition, they can help separate the power and ground planes in mixed signal circuits. When combined with a bypass capacitor, ferrite beads can act like an LC filter. When using these filters, you should pay close attention to their LC resonance, because this can cause EMI problems in your system.
There are several different types of ferrite material, each designed for specific applications. The permeability of a ferrite core filter is proportional to the impedance of the core, so the filter should have a narrow band for unwanted frequencies. To help you decide which one to use, you can consult the saturation table of a ferrite core filter and its DC resistance spec.
Another useful tool for noise filtering circuit design and analysis is the ferrite bead model. This model can be used to determine the resonant frequency cutoff. However, it is important to note that this model is only an approximation. It may be necessary to use more complex models.
For example, if you're trying to filter high-frequency noise from an audio system, you'll want to use an fb102-31 ferrite bead with RG-58 cable. This cable can be spread out 360 degrees, which will minimize the capacity effects and allow for a low choking impedance. This combination provides excellent isolation for high-frequency equipment. It is also ideal for TV tuners.
While ferrite bead sensitivity does vary, it is important to note that a ferrite bead's broadband resonant frequency is between 0.1 MHz and 10 MHz.
