The HDMIULC6-4SC6Y is a monolithic, application specific discrete device dedicated to ESD protection of the HDMI connection. It also offers the same high level of protection for IEEE 1394a and IEEE 1394b/c, USB 2.0, Ethernet links, and video lines.
Its ultrahigh cutoff frequency (5.3 GHz) secures a high level of signal integrity. The device topology provides this integrity without compromising the complete protection of ICs against the most stringent ESD strikes.
- 4-line 15 kV ESD protection
- Protects VBUSwhen applicable
- Ultrahigh bandwidth - no influence on signal rise and fall times - maximized number of signal harmonics
- Very low leakage current: 0.5 μA max.
- Fast response time compared with varistors
- SOT23-6L package
- RoHS compliant
- ESD standards compliance guaranteed at device level, hence greater immunity at system level
- ESD protection of VBUSwhen applicable.
- High efficiency due to low residual voltage when confronted by an ESD surge
- Minimized rise and fall times for maximum data integrity
Consistent D+ / D- signal balance:
- Ultralow impact on intra-, inter-pair skew
- Matching high bit rate HDMI requirements and ready for future evolution
- Low PCB space occupation - 9 mm2maximum footprint
- Higher reliability offered by monolithic integration
- Complies with these standards:
IEC 61000-4-2 level 4
- 15 kV air discharge
- 8 kV (and up to 15 kV) contact discharge
- IEC 61000-4-2 level 4
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!
