In common with all TrEOS components, the new parts combine extremely low capacitance ensuring high signal integrity, extremely low clamping and high robustness for modern automotive interfaces. Specific automotive applications include infotainment, multimedia and ADAS systems featuring USB 3.2, HDMI, LVDS, SerDes and SD-card interfaces.
Nexperia’s TrEOS ESD protection technology uses active silicon-controlled rectification to overcome the traditional protection trade-off challenge. Capacitance is kept down to 0.5 pF, clamping voltage is just 3 V and devices can withstand surge and ESD pulses up to 10 A 8/20 µs. This industry-leading performance in all areas is delivered in the extensively-proven SOT23 package.
The first four PESD2USBx-T series AEC-Q101-qualified TrEOS ESD protection devices are in mass production now.
