ProTek Devices has introduced an ultra-low capacitance transient voltage suppressor array for electrostatic discharge circuit protection in Ethernet ports, AV inputs and a variety of other high-speed data interfaces. It’s ideal for use in servers, desktops and laptop computers as well as smartphones, switching systems, and more. The PLR2210 has a typical capacitance of 0.6pF at 2.5V. Each I/O pin can withstand more than 1,000 electrostatic discharge (ESD) strikes for ±8kV contact discharge.

It is compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air 30kV, contact 30kV, with 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A, 5/50ns, and with 61000-4-5 (surge): 10A, 8/20 micro seconds. It features 170 watts of peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 micro seconds) and provides circuit protection for two line pairs. The PLR2210 has low leakage current and a low operating and clamping voltage. The TVS array is also RoHS and REACH compliant.

The PLR2210 is provided in a molded DFN-8 package with an approximate weight of only seven milligrams. The package is optimised for high-speed lines. Other key mechanical details include lead-free packaging and solder reflow temperature of 260 to 270ºC. It also has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.

It is available in minimum quantities of 5,000 units in 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. Pricing information and purchasing details can be had by contacting any worldwide authorised distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices including the company’s European sales director based in Ireland. The company’s distributor and representative channels are available worldwide across the USA, Europe, Asia, Latin America and more.
