Semtech (Camarillo, CA) has announced the TClamp1202P, a low-cap, high-surge, 12 V (Vrwm) transient voltage protection array. The TClamp1202P offers 100 A (8 x 20 µs waveform) of surge immunity in a small 2 x 2 mm package. The TClamp1202P can be used in a wide range of industrial and telecommunications applications for safeguarding sensitive communications transceivers from electrostatic discharge, electrical fast transients, cable discharge and lightning surge transients. Features include:

  • 12 V working voltage protection.
  • High surge capability: 100 A (tp=8/20 μs).
  • Protects two I/O lines.
  • Low capacitance (< 12 pF line-to-line).
  • Pb-free and RoHS/WEEE compliant.
