Protection Array Provides Low Capacitance
Exhibiting a surge current of >11 A, Vishay Intertechnology’s VBUS054CV-HS3 4-line ESD protection array displays a capacitance of 1.20 pF at a working voltage of 5 V. The 1.60 mm × 1.60 mm × 0.75 mm LLP75-packaged component demonstrates maximum leakage current of <0.10 µA, typical breakthrough voltage of 7 V at 1 mA, and maximum clamping voltage of 22 V at 13 A. The RoHS- and WEEE-compliant unit protects 4 data lines as per IEC 61000-4-2 at 30 kV (air and contact discharge) and IEC 61000-4-5 (lighting) from 11 A. Applications include portable and handheld computing, communications, industrial, and medical systems. Pricing is $0.15 each in 100,000 quantities.
