Littelfuse (Chicago, IL) has announced it has developed a new SP3012-06UTG Low Capacitance ESD Protection TVS Diode Array (SPA Devices). The new product is optimized for protecting sensitive chipsets on high-speed data lines from any external ESD (electrostatic discharge) event. Typical applications include USB 3.0 and HDMI port protection on LCD/PDP TVs, DVD/Blu-ray players, desktop PCs, MP3/PMPs, set top boxes, smartphones, ultrabooks/notebooks, and digital cameras. Features include:
- Ultra-low capacitance (0.5pF).
- Market-leading dynamic resistance of 0.4 Ω provides clamping voltage two to three times lower than competitive devices.
- ESD, IEC61000-4-2, ±12 kV contact discharge, ±25 kV air discharge rating.
- Small form factor µDFN-14 package (3.5 x 1.35 x 0.5 mm); allows PCB traces to run directly underneath the device, minimizing trace discontinuities.
