ESD Protection Device Offers Low Capacitance
Protecting data lines for applications such as HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) from ESD, Epcos’ 0603-sized ceramic multilayer CeraDiode exhibits a typical capacitance of 0.6 pF. The SOD-523-packaged component delivers data rates of up to 10 Gb/s, and is said to be able to replace semiconductor diodes 1:1 due to their identical fit, form, and function. Pricing ranges from $0.03 to $0.06 each, depending on type and quantity ordered.
