pdficon ESD and Transient Protection Using the SP720 Application Note

This application note discusses ESD and transient protection using the SP720. For a given level of voltage or power there is a defined degree of protection compatible to that need. For the SP720 the protection circuits are designed to clamp over-voltage within a range of peak current that will substantially improve the survival input expectancy of average monolithic silicon circuits used for small signal and digital processing applications.
