TE Connectivity PESD Series ESD Protection Devices
TE Connectivity PESD Series ESD Protection Devices help protect I/O ports on HDMI 1.3, portable video players, LCD & plasma TVs, USB 2.0, digital visual interface (DVI), and antenna switches. ESD devices shunt electrostatic discharge away from sensitive circuitry in HDTV equipment, printers, laptops, cellular phones, and other portable devices. These ESD devices offer many advantages over traditional protection devices, such as multi layer varistors (MLVs), which may degrade or distort the signal in high data rate circuits. Compared to transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes and miniature gas discharge tubes (GDTs), ESD devices provide a more compact form factor and an economical solution for the shrinking profiles of today’s compact information appliances.
