Low Capacitance ESD Protection Chips for USB Ports
OnChip Devices introduced low capacitance ESD protection devices for single and dual USB ports. These devices protect the two data lines and the power rail of the USB 2.0 high speed interface. The ESD2100-02 and ESD2100-04 (2 and 4 channels, respectively) have a sub-1pF line capacitance to ensure minimal distortion USB signal, offering a compromise between low line-to-ground capacitance and compliance with IEC61000-4-2 level 4. The OnChip ESD2100-02 costs $0.11 in quantities of 10,000, while the ESD2100-04 is $0.15.
