Features and Applications
Raychem a leader in Circuit Protection and a division of Tyco Electronics is offering the PESD0402-140
The Raychem PESD electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection devices help protection I/O ports on HDMI 1.3, portable video players, LCD & plasma TVs, USB 2.0, digital visual interface (DVI), and antenna switches. PESD devices shunt ESD away from sensitive circuitry in HDTV equipment, printers, laptops, cellular phones, and other portable devices.
PESD devices offer many advantages over traditional protection devices, such as Zener diodes and multi layer varistors (MLVs), which may degrade or distort the signal in high data rate circuits. Compared to transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes and miniature gas discharge tubes (GDTs), PESD devices provide a more compact form factor and an economical solution for the shrinking profiles of today's compact information appliances. PESD protection devices provide low capacitance, and meet transmission line pulse (TLP) testing, as well as IEC61000-4-2 testing.
