TVS Diode Arrays Improve ESD Protection in Smartphones, Tablets and Laptops
Littelfuse Inc.

The SPxx-01WTG-C-HV Series general purpose ESD protection TVS diode arrays are high-voltage 0201-size components suited for safeguarding the data lines on larger touchscreen modules that are used in large-format tablets and notebooks. They use higher voltages across their rows and columns to allow the touchscreen to distinguish between intended and unintended touches. The SPxx Series can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level of the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation and safely dissipate up to 8A of induced surge current with comparatively low clamping voltages. In addition, when compared to other industry solutions, it offers 25 percent higher peak pulse power, 50 percent lower leakage current, and up to 40 percent lower capacitance. Unlike those other solutions, the SPxx Series is AEC-Q101 qualified, assuring circuit designers of automotive-grade quality.
