L-com, a manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has released a new series of USB 3.0 cable assemblies with ferrite beads. 

According to Product Manager Dustin Guttadauro ferrite beads prevent interference from a connected device or to a connected device and help to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) from either being radiated by a cable or being received by a cable.
