ML628 - Grounding the bullseye connector to negate noise


How do I properly connect the bullseye connector to my board?


To properly connect the bullseye connector, make sure to apply the plastic ground isolation grommet prior to plugging the cable in. Once the cable is attached to the bullseye connector, attach the ground wire from the bullseye cable to a proper grounding location on the board. If the ground cable and/or the plastic ground isolation grommet are not connected, you may see a lot of extra noise on the line. In some cases this will prevent the GTH from working properly.
