ST’s clamping arrays support many applications such as smartphones, audio accessories, set-top boxes, glucose meters, metering, and home gateways, to name just a few.
They are available in a wide range of packages and include:
- The smallest single-line packages available on the market, such as 0402
- The smallest 2-5 multi-line full range packages
- They also offer robustness and high clamping capability providing the most efficient overvoltage protection. The capacitance is available from standard to ultra low to meet specific application requirements.
Cost and service performance is guaranteed due to ST’s high-volume production capacity, integrated front-end and multiple back-end lines, as well as partnerships with major subcontractors.
In this video, we explain why it is important to protect against electrostatic discharges. We give a quick demonstration to show exactly what happens when you shoot at a microcontroller with an ESD gun!
