Bidirectional TVS Diode Arrays Guard High-Speed Interfaces

March 7, 2017

Designed to protect electronic equipment from destructive electrostatic discharges (ESD), the SP3042 Series bidirectional discrete TVS diode arrays include robust back-to-back TVS diodes fabricated using a proprietary silicon avalanche technology. They can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes up to the maximum level specified in the IEC 61000-4-2 international standard (±30kV contact discharge) without performance degradation. The back-to-back configuration provides symmetrical ESD protection for data lines when AC signals are present in a space-efficient 01005 footprint. The series’ low loading capacitance (0.35pF @ VR=0V, typ.) makes them ideal for protecting high-speed interfaces such as HDMI2.0, USB2.0, USB3.0 and eSATA. The SP3042 Series arrays are available in surface mount 01005-size flip chip packages in tape and reel format in quantities of 15,000.
