ProTek Devices™ has introduced an ultra-low capacitance transient voltage suppressor array for electrostatic discharge circuit protection in Ethernet ports, AV inputs and a variety of other high-speed data interfaces. It’s ideal for use in servers, desktops and laptop computers as well as smartphones, switching systems, and more.
The PLR2210 has a typical capacitance of 0.6pF at 2.5 volts. Each I/O pin can withstand more than 1,000 electrostatic discharge (ESD) strikes for ±8kV contact discharge. It is compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): Air 30kV, contact 30kV, with 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A, 5/50ns, and with 61000-4-5 (surge): 10A, 8/20 microseconds. It features 170 watts of peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 microseconds) and provides circuit protection for two line pairs. The PLR2210 has low leakage current and a low operating and clamping voltage. The TVS array is also RoHS and REACH compliant.
The PLR2210 is provided in a moulded DFN-8 package with an approximate weight of only seven milligrammes. The package is optimised for high-speed lines. Other key mechanical details include lead-free packaging and solder reflow temperature of 260 to 270 degrees Celsius. It also has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.
