ON Semiconductor unveils latest transient voltage suppression devices


ON Semiconductor, a provider of silicon solutions for
energy efficient electronics, announced the launch of its latest transient
voltage suppression devices for
high-speed data lines.


The three new devices, the ESD7008, MG2040 and ESD7104,
provide electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for high-speed data and video
lines while offering the lowest capacitance, highest signal integrity and low
clamping voltages.


As consumer
and computing products adopt  new higherer bandwidth interfaces,
capacitance and low clamping voltages are critical for reliable operation,”
said Gary Straker, vice president
and general manager of Protection Products Division,
ON Semiconductor.


Designed to protect up to four high-speed differential
pairs (eight lines), the ESD7008 delivers industry leading ESD protection with
extremely low I/O to ground capacitance of 0.12 picofarads (pF) in a space
efficient package design.


The new part is housed in a flow-through UDFN18 package
that supports easy PCB layout and matched trace lengths necessary to maintain
consistent impedance for high-speed lines. This industry leading low
capacitance guarantees high signal integrity for these ultrafast


Emerging applications for the ESD7008 include USB
3.0 where it protects 3 high speed pairs plus Vcc and Iden lines for a fully
integrated solution, V-by-One and Thunderbolt (Light Peak). Other popular
applications where the ESD7008 proves an excellent solution includes HDMI,
DisplayPort and LVDS.


The MG2040 transient voltage suppressor is designed specifically
to provide full functionality integrated ESD protection for up to 14 lines
serving all active pins of HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces. Ultra-low
capacitance of 0.35 pF typical (I/O to GND), flow through package design, and a
low ESD clamping voltage make the MG2040 ideal for protecting voltage sensitive
high-speed data lines.


The MG2040 provides a single device replacement in
applications where multiple parts would typically be used, thus saves cost and
board space while improving performance.


The third of the new transient voltage suppressors
introduced by ON Semiconductor is the ESD7104. Housed in an extremely space
efficient UDFN10 package, the device allows easy layout and matched trace
lengths between high-speed differential lines in applications such as USB 3.0,
HDMI, eSATA 3.0 and DisplayPort. The ESD7104 provides low capacitance ESD
protection for up to four lines and has a typical I/O to GND capacitance of 0.3


All three of ON Semiconductor’s new transient voltage
suppressors have an operating junction temperature range of -55 ºC to +125 ºC.
They also exceed the protection requirements of IEC 6100-4-2 (level 4) by
protecting over 15kv contact and air discharge. 


ON Semiconductor recently introduced
a series of small signal transistors that are qualified in accordance with the
MIL-PRF-19500 and MIL-STD-750 standards for discrete semiconductors broadly
used in military and aerospace equipment.
