ESD protection devices earn automotive qualification

1 May 2013 Circuit & System Protection

TE Connectivity’s Circuit Protection business unit announced that eight products in its SESD (Silicon ESD) series of passive circuit protection devices have now been AEC-Q101qualified for use in automotive applications and specifically for in-vehicle infotainment systems.

Like the consumer electronics sector in general, automotive infotainment systems can utilise ultra-high-speed data interfaces, including USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI 1.3 and 1.4, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, V-by-One HS and LVDS protocols. These high-speed data lines can be subject to electrostatic discharge events, but TE Circuit Protection’s SESD product family comprises a set of low-capacitance diodes capable of helping to protect these data lines.

An additional advantage is that the small XDFN package size of these products saves PCB space, meeting the consumer sector’s demand for highly compact devices.

The SESD series of devices is rated for a low capacitance of 0,20 pF for unidirectional devices, and 0,10 pF for bidirectional devices, allowing signal integrity for today’s highest-speed interfaces. The flow-through standard array package and small XDFN package size simplifies PCB design, and provides solutions for electronic design within severe space constraints.
