Nexperia has announced three new TrEOS protection devices that provide the most compact method to suppress ESD in USB3.2, HDMI2.1 and other high-speed data lines. The latest PUSB3BB2DF, PESD5V0C2BDF, PESD4V0Z2BCDF devices provide best-in-class ESD protection and system robustness by combining high RF performance with very low clamping and very high surge capability.
Stefan Seider, product group manager at Nexperia comments: “Electrical engineers designing HDMI2.1, USB, Thunderbolt and other high-speed interfaces can miniaturize their designs while benefiting from industry-leading RF performance.”
The new parts combine two TrEOS protection diodes in one miniature DFN0603-3 package – effectively delivering two diodes in the footprint of one. As well as saving space, this reduces component count and increases reliability. Also, the package is well-known so there are no unforeseen manufacturing challenges to address.
The new DFN0603-3 device family supports very high-speed data rates, offering a maximum pass-band of above 18 GHz, 50% higher than competing parts. Devices also feature very high surge robustness of up to 11 A 8/20 µs. The 2-in-1 TrEOS protection devices are available now.
