TVS Diodes protect up to 2 I/O lines.

Press Release Summary:



RailClamp® TVS diodes protect sensitive components connected to high-speed data and transmission lines from overvoltage caused by ESD, CDE (cable discharge events), and EFT (electrical fast transients). Able to protect up to 2 I/O lines, products feature less than 1 pF capacitance, no insertion loss to over 3.0 GHz, and profile of less than 1 mm. Transient protection is rated to IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) ±18 kV (air) and ±12 kV (contact) as well as IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) 40 A (5/50 ns).
