Filtering out Common Mode Noise in Congested Environments with Monolithic EMI filters

Feb 21, 2019 | A multitude of factors are conspiring to increase the amount of “noise” interference that can disturb the functionality and even damage electronic devices, starting with the sheer number used in our vicinity at any given time. Today’s automobiles provide a prime example. In a single vehicle you can find Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, satellite radio, GPS systems, LED lights, air conditioning, power steering, anti-lock brakes, rear-view cameras and other instrumentation. Numerous items also operate using dc motors, including power seats, adjustable mirrors, windshield wipers, power windows and sunroofs.
