The EMI performance of cable-connector assemblies designed for FC-0 transmission has been studied. Two types of cable and two connector styles were evaluated. Experimental results show that the dominant radiation mechanism for short cable lengths is the common-mode current caused by source and PCB skew that leaks to the exterior of the shield via the transfer impedance of the connector. However, the cable imbalance becomes a more significant source of common-mode current than the source skew when the cable assembly is tens of meters long
