USB 3.0 radio noise can interfere with 2.4GHz wireless devices

Interesting research by Intel on the negative effects of radio interference generated by USB 3.0 devices on 2.4GHz wireless devices.

Improving the shielding on the USB 3.0 receptacle connector can help reduce the amount of noise radiated due to USB 3.0 signaling. In addition, shielding of the USB 3.0 peripheral device plays an important role in reducing the amount of noise radiated in the 2.4–2.5 GHz range.
