Integrated device protects four high-speed signal I/O and one power line -- Optimized for video/data interface protocols with signals from 100MHz to more than 1GHz, such as DVI, USB, S-Video, and analog SVGA/VGA -- Low capacitance (5pF max, 3pF typ) and leakage current (5uA max) preserves high-speed signal integrity -- Very low clamping voltage -- one diode drop above the supplied reference voltage -- ESD protection to IEC 61000-4-2, Level 4 (8kV contact, 15kV air) and protection from cable discharge events -- Space-saving, surface-mount JEDEC SOT-23 6L package optimized for portable applications
The maximum clamping voltage seen by protected circuitry during a transient event is held to one diode drop above the SR70's reference voltage input, which is typically connected to the protected device's supply voltage.
