I am having problems with different USB cables when I connect to the AE-CLOUD1 board with a serial console, both Putty and TeraTerm. Is it possible for a Ferrite core ring bead to help with the stability of the connection?
I am looking at this 10 pack for $6.99, but do not know if it would have any effect?
I have a TI MSP430 LaunchPad kit and it came with a Ferrite Core Ring Bead for the USB cable that handles both power and debugging. The MSP430 is a pretty cheap and barebones kit. If TI spent the money on a ferrite core, I'm suspecting that it was needed. The TI Launchpad does use Ferroelectric RAM, so maybe there is a difference in the board design that warrants the use of ferrite core?
In any case, I'd like to improve the stability of my serial connection to the AE-CLOUD1 board.
How's your problem with the cable? Is it really because of the ferrite core ring bead filter or the cable is just faulty?
