Diodes Thwart ESD In High-Speed Interfaces

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. has introduced a line of multi-bit, low-capacitance electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection diodes for high-speed interfaces. Suitable for use in mobile devices, including smart phones, tablets and wearable devices, the new diodes deliver excellent protection performance and support interfaces including USB 3.0/3.1 and HDMI. The new devices simultaneously deliver low capacitance, low dynamic resistance and high ESD endurance.

 

Minimum signal distortion of high-speed data signals is guaranteed by the ultra-low capacitance of 0.2pF, while a typical dynamic resistance of RDYN=0.5Ω ensures low clamping voltages. High ESD protection levels are supported by electrostatic discharge voltages of at least ±20 kV according to IEC61000-4-2.

The line of ESD protection diodes is available in three different package sizes. The small SOD-962 package is suitable for multi-port applications that are expected to grow, such as USB Type-C; the flow-through DFN10 (2.5×1.0mm) package can reduce the inductance of wires; and the SOD-882 (CST2) (1.0×1.6mm) package can contribute to slimmer, smaller devices.
