Nexperia has announced an extension to its portfolio of extremely low clamping and ultra-low capacitance ESD protection diodes that is designed to protect high-speed data lines such as USB 3.2, HDMI 2.0, LVDS, automotive A/V Monitors, displays, and cameras. These latest product additions include PESD5V0C1BLS-Q and PESD5V0C1ULS-Q both as 2-pin single-line devices with a very compact DFN1006BD-2 package for optimized routing flexibility and this new portfolio aims to address the upcoming high-speed video-links as well as the OPEN Alliance MGbit ethernet applications.


These AEC-Q101 automotive qualified devices exhibit deep snapback behavior combined with a low resistance of 0.27 Ω, for improved system level robustness and clamping performance in high-speed data interfaces. These diodes provide best-in-class signal integrity performance because of their ultra-low device capacitance (as low as 0.3 pF). For maximum design flexibility, these diodes are offered in both dual-line DFN1006-3 and single-line DFN1006BD-2. The latter packages have side wettable flanks to enable automated optical inspection (AOI).
