ProTek Devices has introduced a new Transient Voltage Suppressor array (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 Electrostatic Discharges (ESD) and Electrical Fast Transients (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 8/20µs surge pulse. It has a 5.0 rated standoff voltage and 6.0 minimum breakdown voltage, and the PLR05214LC is also RoHS and REACH compliant. It also has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.

Mechanical, packaging and availability information
The TVS array is provided in a miniature DFN-10 package to make it suited for PCB areas where the need for space is at a premium. It has an approximate weight of only 7mg. The package also features lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed) and a solder reflow temperature of (pure-tin - Sn, 100) 260-270°C.

ProTek Devices’ PLR05214LC is delivered in minimum quantities of 3,000 devices on 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481.
