ProTek Devices has introduced a new series of ultra-low capacitance (0.6pF typical) transient voltage suppressor arrays for overvoltage circuit protection in smartphones and other portable electronics. The new series is also suited for Ethernet, USB interface and wireless systems.
ProTek Devices’ GBLCxxCIDFN series of TVS arrays are available in a bidirectional configuration. They are rated at 250W peak pulse power per line for an 8/20 micro second waveshape. It is available in multiple voltages. It protects one power or I/O port. ESD protection is more than 25kV and the series also offers a low clamping voltage.
The new TVS arrays are compatible with IEC requirements for 61000-4-2 (ESD): air - 15kV, contact - 8kV. For this requirement, it exceeds level 4: handles 10kV contact and 25kV air discharge. The GBLCxxCIDFN series is also compatible with IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A - 5/50ns. The new components are suitable to use as replacements for MLV (0805) devices. In addition, the series is RoHS and REACH compliant. Operating and storage temperatures range from -55 to 150ºC.
Mechanical, packaging and availability information
The patent-pending GBLCxxCIDFN series is now available and is provided in a molded JEDEC DFN-2 package with an approximate weight of only 0.8 milligrams. Other key mechanical characteristics include lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed) and a solder reflow temperature of (pure-tin - Sn, 100) 260 to 270ºC.
The GBLCxxCIDFN series has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0. It is delivered on 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481, in minimum quantities of 5,000. Pricing information and purchasing details can be had by contacting any authorised distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices.
