The four-line, 3.3V RClamp3324P offers designers increased protection margin by offering an exceptionally low ESD clamping voltage
while minimizing loading capacitance to protect high-speed data interfaces, including LVDS, Ethernet and USB 3.x.
Vendors offer AV surge protectors with indicator lights, UL rating, clamping voltage
, joule rating, response time, and others.
Most whole-house surge suppressors use MOV (metal oxide varistors) components that absorb the electrical energy from the surge when it gets above a certain level (clamping voltage
The new PAM8S series provides an industry best combination of surpassing ISO 16750-2:2010(E) load dump testing while also delivering an industry-leading lowest clamping voltage
at 48.4 volts.
The voltage of the tested input EMP is above the clamping voltage
of each protection device.
They support an operating temperature range of -40 ?C to +85 ?C, and each have a clamping voltage
of 32 volts (V), which typically is at least thirty times better than existing ceramic solutions.
MOVs are rated by the voltage at which they become conductive (clamping voltage
) and the amount of current they are able to handle.
The device features small 0201 standard package (0.6mmx0.3mm); bi-directional +/- 30kV contact discharge ESD protection per IEC61000-4-2 standard; low clamping voltage
of +/- 8.6V; and low dynamic resistance, typically 0.4 Ohm.
Check the technical specifications for these minimum features: 330 volts (or less) clamping voltage
, 5 nanoseconds (or less) clamping speed and 500 joules (or more) energy dissipation.
-- 40% reduction in peak clamping voltage
-- 15-40% reduction in peak residual current -- 100 Ohm differential impedance matching with no external compensation required -- Straight through routing for improved layout -- Compact 16 pin TDFN package for reduced board space
The proper selection is a function of the performance of the device under transient conditions with an ideal transient voltage suppressor reaching its clamping voltage
in zero time.
