Vishay’s New 4-Line Bus Port Protection Array Provides Low Typical Capacitance of 1.2 pF and High Surge Current of > 11 A in Ultra-Compact LLP75 Leadless Package
Device Features Low Profile of 0.75 mm for Board Space Savings in Portable Electronics
MALVERN, Pa. — Sept. 5, 2008 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today released a compact new 4-line ESD-protection array designed to provide a low capacitance with a high surge current for the protection of dual high-speed USB ports, or up to four other high-frequency signal lines, against transient voltage signals.
The VBUS054CV-HS3 is packaged in the leadless LLP75, with a 1.6-mm by 1.6-mm footprint and an ultra-low profile of 0.75 mm to minimize the board space required for active ESD protection in a wide range of portable electronics, including portable and handheld computing, communications, industrial, and medical systems.
The new device features a low load capacitance of 1.2 pF and a low maximum leakage current of < 0.1 μA at the working voltage of 5 V. The array offers a breakthrough voltage of typical 7 V (at 1 mA), and a maximum clamping voltage of 22 V at 13 A.
The bus port protection array provides transient protection for four data lines as per IEC 61000 4 2 (ESD) at 30 kV (air and contact discharge) and IEC 61000 4 5 (lightning) from 11 A. It is also compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC.
Samples and production quantities of the new ESD bus port-protection array in the compact LLP75 package are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for large orders.
