4, 6, or 8 channels of high-speed ESD protection in a single integrated device -- Integral zener diode clamp to suppress supply rail transients -- +/-15KV contact,+/-15KV air ESD protection per channel (IEC 61000-4-2 standard) -- Low loading capacitance-6pF typical -- Low supply current (less than 10 uA) for low power applications -- Clamping voltage less than 15V (Vp + 10V) with no higher trigger voltages -- Sub-nanosecond response times
These devices use a diode clamp configuration based on a proven manufacturing process, developed by California Micro Devices, that is optimized for minimum capacitance while simultaneously providing superior ESD protection with low clamping voltage levels.
The CM1210 uses diode clamp configuration based on an advanced Metal Oxide Silicon (MOS) process, developed by California Micro Devices, that is optimized for minimum capacitance while simultaneously providing good ESD protection with low clamping voltage levels.
In their off-state, MLVs can act as EMI filters, and in their on-state, they can act as back-to-back equivalent diode clamps.
Its internal diode clamps and bias circuitry accommodate both AC- or DC-coupled input signals;
