ProTek Devices has introduced the PLR0502-6, an ultra-low capacitance (0.7pF typical) TVS Steering Diode. It provides circuit protection in various high-speed consumer and networking applications, such as USB 1.0 to 3.1, HDMI 2.0 and 4K, DVI, IEEE 1394 FireWire, and Gigabit Ethernet.
ProTek Devices new device specifically targets protection against electrostatic discharges (ESD) and electrical fast transients (EFT) for interfaces, wireless bus applications and portable electronics against the effects of ESD and EFT. The PLR0502-6 meets a variety of IEC standards: 61000-4-2 (ESD) compliant for Air 15kV and contact 8kV; 61000-4-4 (EFT); and 61000-4-5 (surge) at 3A, 50W, 8/20 micro second. In addition, it provides a low clamping voltage and low leakage current. It provides for unidirectional configuration, ultimately protecting two I/O ports and a power supply. The device is also RoHS and REACH compliant.
Some other new ultra low capacitance products designed for high-speed data interface applications include:
- PLR2210 : An ultra-low cap TVS (0.4pF typical 0.6pF max ) array in a DFN 8 package for protecting high-speed data interfaces , 170W and 12A IPP capacity at 8/20 surge. Designed for 10GBase-T Ethernet ports application.
- PLR0506LP: An ultra-low cap Steering diode/TVS array in a very low profile DFN8. Designed for Gigabit Ethernet, DVI and HDMI USB3.0 applications.
