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.

Get rid of ESD hazards with new ultra-low-clamping 0201 ESD protection

Thanks to its snap-back technology, ESDZV5-1BF4 and ESDZL5-1F4 single-line TVS diodes provide the best in-class clamping voltage (V CL) down to 7 V for an 8 kV ESD contact discharge (IEC 61000-4-2). The peak pulse current (I PP) capability has been upgraded to 7 A to protect against electrical overstress (EOS). With the flexibility of a single line in the tiny 0201 (0.6 x 0.3 mm) package, removing the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) for core ICs and microcontrollers has now become simpler.
