ESD Protection Devices Come In Tiny 0201 Packages

Now available are three electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection devices that improve the reliability of portable electronics such as mobile phones, MP3 players, PDAs and digital cameras. The 0201-sized Silicon ESD (SESD) devices are approximately 70% smaller than prior generation 0402-sized devices with a footprint of just 0.6 mm x 0.3 mm x 0.3 mm. Bi-directional operation allows placement on the PCB without orientation constraints and won't clip signals that swing below ground. Designed to withstand IEC61000-4-2 ESD test pulses, the SESD device helps protect sensitive ICs. The initial offerings in the 0201 chip-scale package (CSP) include the SESD0201C-006-058 and the SESD0201C-120-058. The SESD0201C-006-058 is a bi-directional and ultra-low capacitance 0.6-pF device that is suitable for protecting very-high-speed data lines, such as USB and HDMI, or low-voltage antenna ports. The device's ultra-low capacitance, low insertion loss (
