The DALC208SC6 diode array is designed to protect components which are connected to data and transmission lines from over voltages caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD) or other transients. It is a rail-to-rail protection device also suited for overshoot and undershoot suppression on sensitive logic inputs.
The low capacitance of the DALC208SC6 prevents significant signal distortion.
- Protection of 4 lines
- Very low capacitance per diode: C < 5 pF
- Peak reverse voltage: VRRM = 9 V per diode
- Very low leakage current: IR < 1μA
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!
