  • Patent number: 9787087
    Abstract: An electronic device including first and second line inputs, first and second device inputs, a filter circuit, and a switching circuit. The filter circuit has a first input electrically coupled to the first line input, a second input electrically coupled to the second line input, a first output electrically coupled to the first device input, a second output, and at least one capacitor electrically coupling at least one of the first input to the second input or the first output to the second output. The switching circuit has a control input to receive a control signal, and electrically couples the second output to the second device input in response to the control signal having the first state and electrically couples the second output to one of the first input and the first output through a resistor in response to the control signal having the second state.
