Five electrostatic discharge (ESD) suppression devices unveiled by ON Semiconductor achieve maximum capacitance of 0.35 pF and ESD clamping voltages down to 8 V at 16 A. The low capacitance nearly eliminates any degradation to the data-line signal integrity at rates greater than 10 Gbits/s, which in turn will support the latest high-speed interfaces. The ESD8000 transient voltage suppressor (TVS) series’ low clamping voltage improves protection of system-level ESD testing, a key factor for chipsets evolving to below 20-nm geometries. The four-line ESD8004 and ESD8104 can protect two pairs of voltage-sensitive, high-speed data lines in a 2.5- by 1-mm UDFN-10 package, suiting them for USB 3.0, HDMI 2.0, and eSATA. The ESD8008 integrates eight lines, or four differential pairs, into a single package for HDMI, DisplayPort, and V-by-One HS interfaces. The six-line ESD8006 protects 10-Gbit/s interfaces such as Thunderbolt and USB 3.1. It has 0.25-pF capacitance and utilizes single connect flow-through packaging, eliminating the “no connect” pin. Finally, the ESD8040 provides 14 lines of integrated ESD protection for HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort I/Os.
