Near Field Communication (NFC) technology requires specific ESD protection to keep the interface controller safe.
ST offers a wide and versatile product range, fully tested with NFC to protect against IEC 61000-4-2. These products provide the best compromise for:
- Signal integrity, resulting from the large bandwidth
- The protection level associated to a low clamping voltage and robust technology
Various packages with different numbers of protected channels are available for a higher flexibility.
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!
