The ESDALCxxxWx are monolithic suppressors designed to protect components connected to data and transmission lines against ESD.
These devices clamp the voltage just above the logic level supply for positive transients, and to a diode drop below ground for negative transients.
- 4 Unidirectional Transil functions
- Low leakage current: < 1 µA
- Breakdown voltage:
VBR = 6.1 V minimum
- Very small PCB area < 4.2 mm2 typically
- Low capacitance: 7.5 pF at 3 V
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!
