Press Release Summary:
The WE-TVS Series TVS Diodes are offered in standard, high speed and super speed series. The standard series diodes are available in uni- and the bidirectional technologies and are designed for slow interfaces such as RS232, RS485, or power-supply systems. The high- and super-speed series diodes come with rail-to-rail protective circuit design and are suitable for very fast interfaces such as USB 3.1, HDMI, Thunderbolt, or GBit Ethernet. The diodes offer protection against electrostatic discharges at all protection levels.
Original Press Release:
Three Product Series for Safe Protection Against ESD
Waldenburg (Germany), 19 October 2018 – Würth Elektronik eiSos has expanded its portfolio of TVS diodes. The diodes are characterized by their short response time and an extremely low terminal voltage, and feature a high ESD dielectric strength with a contact discharge of up to ±30 kV. WE-TVS diodes in the three series “Standard”, “High Speed”, and “Super Speed” offer effective protection against electrostatic discharges at all protection levels. The new TVS diodes meet the industrial standards IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT), and IEC 61000-4-5 (surge) and are flame-resistant (UL 94 V-0).
The three WE-TVS series comprise sophisticated TVS diodes for the effective protection of sensitive data lines – for example in the consumer electronics field, such as headsets and accessories, digital cameras, laptops, or USB power-delivery applications (PD). In these areas, the semiconductor components such as ICs and LEDs are often in immediate contact with external interfaces that may be exposed to electrostatic discharges. The Würth Elektronik TVS diodes block the electrostatic discharges and reliably protect these components against direct or delayed interferences or even the complete failure of the end devices.
The diodes are available in three separate series: first, there’s the Standard series for slow interfaces such as RS232, RS485, or power-supply systems. In addition, there are the High Speed and the Super Speed series that have been developed for very fast interfaces such as USB 3.1, HDMI, Thunderbolt, or GBit Ethernet, a further characteristic feature of these two series being a small capacitance of as low as 0.12 pF. The “WE-TVS TVS Diode – Standard Series” is available in both the uni- and the bidirectional technologies. The “WE-TVS TVS Diode – High Speed Series” and “WE-TVS TVS Diode – Super Speed Series” can be supplied in a rail-to-rail protective circuit design, which offers the additional benefit of protecting the supply voltage using one and the same component.
Free-of-charge samples can be provided on request. The TVS diodes are available from stock.
