4-Line Bus Port Protection Array
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. released a new 4-line ESD – protection array in the new ultra-compact LLP2510 package. Featuring a compact 2.5 mm by 1.0 mm footprint and ultra-low profile of 0.55 mm, the VBUS54ED-FBL offers low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals.
In addition to saving board space, the 4-line VBUS54ED-FBL features a “flow through” design that supports the surge resistance requirements for high-speed data lines in applications such as USB 3.0, HDMI, DisplayPort, eSATA, and 1394/Firewire in mobile electronics including notebook computers, cell phones, MP3 players, and portable gaming systems.
The new device features a low load capacitance of 0.6 pF and a low maximum leakage current of < 0.1 µA at the working voltage of 5.5 V. The array offers a breakdown voltage of typical 7.9 V at 1 mA, and a maximum clamping voltage of 12.5 V at 2 A.
The VBUS54ED-FBL provides transient protection for data lines as per IEC 61000−4−2 (ESD) at 15 kV (air and contact discharge). The lead (Pb)-free device is compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and its soldering can be checked by standard vision inspection without X-rays.
Samples and production quantities of the new VBUS54ED-FBL are available now, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for large orders.
