Discrete semiconductor vendor Good-Ark Semiconductor is attending the 2018 Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) held this week in San Antonio, Texas, and it brought along its recently released electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection diodes and array series.
The DFN0603 ESD TVS series of diodes offers low leakage, fast response time and low clamping voltage. The devices are designed to protect sensitive components connected to data and transmission lines from overvoltage caused by ESD and electrical fast transients (EFT). Due to a small footprint and low profile, the diodes are suitable for smartphones, USB 3.0, audio lines, speakers, Gigabit Ethernet, LVDS and other portable applications that have space constraints.
The components feature a low leakage current, low clamping voltage, low capacitance and are RoHS compliant and halogen-free, Good-Ark says.
Meanwhile, the line of GSCLAMP0524PE ultra-low capacitance four-line TVS arrays are designed to protect sensitive components connected to high-speed data from overvoltage caused by ESD, cable discharge events (CDE) and EFT. These discretes provide a greater signal integrity making it suitable for HDMI ports, digital visual interface (DVI) and MDDI applications as well as high speed serial interfaces.
The arrays protects up to four lines operating at 5 V with low clamping voltage, low leakage current, ultra-low capacitance and ESD protection for high-speed data lines, Good-Ark says.
