Ultra-low capacitance ESD protection devices
High-speed differential signaling chipsets featuring USB 3.0 or HDMI 2.0 are very sensitive to electrostatic discharges that can reach up to 16 A in 30 ns as per system-level standard IEC 61000-4-2 Level 4 (+/- 8000 V contact discharge). The ESD protection component must clamp these discharges without compromising the signal integrity of the high-speed link.

ESDA devices featuring an ultra-low capacitance
, dedicated to the protection of both wired and RF high-speed links.
, for example, features robust ESD protection (up to +/- 16000 V) with only 0.4 pF line capacitance in order to offer a 10 GHz signal bandwidth. It is housed in a tiny ST0201 package of 0.18 mm² in order to provide the best PCB placement flexibility. An automotive version is also available as
, in SOD882T package.
