pdf icon IEC 61000 4 2 ESD Immunity and Transient Current Capability for the SP72X Series Protection Arrays Application Note

This application note covers IEC 61000-4-2 ESD immunity and transient current capability for the SP72X Series protection arrays. The SP720, SP721, SP723, and SP724 are protection ICs with an array of SCR/Diode bipolar structures for ESD and over-voltage protection of sensitive input circuits. They have 2 protection SCR/Diode device structures per input.

pdf icon 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.
