TVS protection for USB 3.1/Thunderbolt data lines

Central Semiconductor's CFTVS5V0BULC is an ultra-low capacitance 5.0V bi-directional TVS in the space saving SOD-882L. This device provides up to 15kV of transient voltage protection for high speed USB 3.1, Thunderbolt and HDMI 2.0 interfaces. The low 0.35pF maximum capacitance of the CFTVS5V0BULC is an essential characteristic in preventing signal degradation.
