The surface mount family of arrays designed to suppress ESD and other transient overvoltage events. These arrays are used to meet the International Electrotechnical Compatibility (IEC transient immunity standards IEC 61000-4-2 for Electrostatic Discharge Requirements). The series are used to help protect sensitive digital or analog input circuits on data, signal, or control lines with voltage levels up to 5VDC.
The monolithic silicon arrays are comprised of specially designed structures for transient voltage suppression (TVS). The size and shape of these structures have been tailored for transient protection. The low capacitance and clamp voltage are ideal for high-speed signal line protection.
