ESD protection for 10 Gbps-ready devices

ESD protection for 10 Gbps-ready devices

The first single- and multi-line devices from Nexperia's TrEOS protection family deliver benchmark performance in all three key parameters: capacitance, clamping voltage, and surge robustness. The devices provide the perfect solution to safeguard high-speed interfaces up to 10 Gbps and support high-density designs.

The multi-line devices PUSB3FR4, PUSB3FR6 and PUSB3AB6 utilize a deep snapback (for PUSB3FRx 1.5 V typ at II = 1 A; TLP 100/10 ns) combined with a dynamic resistance of only 0.27 Ω for outstanding system protection. The devices are housed in the small leadless DFN2510A-10 (SOT1176-1) and DFN2111-7 (SOT1358-1) plastic packages that are designed for pass-through routing which optimizes signal integrity and simplifies board layout.

The single-line devices include bi-directional (PESD5V0R1BSF, PESD5V0H1BSF, PESD5V0C1BSF) and uni-directional (PESD5V0C1USF) types. These four protection devices come in the very small 0201 form factor (DSN0603-2) especially well-suited for space-constrained applications such as smartphones, tablets and other portable application.
