TVS Array Withstands 100 A Surges
Protecting sub-micron transceivers against GR-1089 level lightning pulses on high-speed data lines, Semtech’s TClamp2502N transient voltage suppressor (TVS) array endures surges of 100 A. The 2.6 mm × 2.6 mm × 0.5 mm SLP-packaged component is rated to 2.5 V, and guards against electrostatic discharge (ESD), cable discharge events (CDE), and electrical fast transients (EFT). The RoHS- and WEEE-compliant device integrates Enhanced Punch-through Diode (EPD) process technology, and exhibits a maximum line-to-line capacitance of 12 pF. Applications include data center routers, digital surveillance cameras, telecom base stations, and triple-play ONTs. Pricing is $1.44 each in 1,000 quantities.
