Single Line TVS Diode for ESD Protection in Portable Electronics, SOD323/T&R
The SD05C TVS diodes are designed to replace multi-layer varistors (MLVs) in portable applications such as cell phones, notebook computers, and PDAs. They offer superior electrical characteristics such as lower clamping voltage and no device degradation when compared to MLVs. The SDxxC series TVS diodes are designed to protect sensitive semiconductor components from damage or upset due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) and other voltage induced transient events. The SDxxC is in a SOD-323 package and will protect one bidirectional line. They are available with working voltages of 5 - 24 volts. These devices will fit on the same PCB pad area as an 0805 MLV device. They give the designer the flexibility to protect one line in applications where arrays are not practical. Additionally, it may be sprinkled around the board in applications where board space is at a premium.
