Electrostatic Discharge Protection Family
Mon, 01/14/2008 - 4:30am
ON Semiconductor introduces a member of its ultra-low capacitance, electrostatic discharge protection family of devices. The ESD9L is a single line ESD protection device that offers 0.5 pico farad (pF) capacitance and low clamping voltage. Available in a small package for ESD protection, this part is suitable for safeguarding high speed data lines in portable applications such as cell phones, MP3 players, PDAs and digital cameras. New generations of portable products are increasingly sensitive to damage from ESD voltage as newer integrated circuit (IC) technologies employ smaller geometries and lower working voltages. At the same time, portable electronics systems are requiring lower capacitance in order to maintain the signal integrity of their high speed data line applications.
