TVS array targets circuit protection in various popular computing interfaces

01-11-2017 | Protek | Power

ProTek Devices has introduced a new TVS array designed for circuit protection in various popular interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire, wireless communications components, USB 3.0, HDMI 2.0, and the type-C connector. It protects against ESD and EFT. The PLR05214LC is an ultra-low capacitance (0.35pF) device that meets various IEC standards: 61000-4-2 (ESD), IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT), and 61000-4-5 (surge). It protects four bidirectional data lines and provides an integrated solution at higher data transmission rates with a minimum insertion loss, while maintaining signal integrity. Maximum power dissipation is 100W for an 8/20 micro second surge pulse. It has a 5.0 rated standoff voltage and 6.0 minimum breakdown voltage, and the device is also RoHS and REACH compliant. It also has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.
