Protects High-Speed Interfaces from Static Electricity
IRVINE, Calif., — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announced the introduction of a new ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection diode - the DF5G7M2N. Built to protect equipment attached to communication lines, the DF5G7M2N shields high-speed interfaces such as USB3.1, HDMI®, DisplayPortTM and Thunderbolt™ from static electricity. It can also be used to protect small portable devices such as smartphones and tablets from ESD events.
Housed in a DFN5 package that reduces its footprint to less than 50 percent of that of similar products1, the DF5G7M2N simplifies wiring design, making it suitable for high density mounting. Additionally, Toshiba's new ESD diode realizes low capacitance and low dynamic resistance by optimizing the process, suppressing signal quality deterioration and providing high ESD resistance.
"Static electricity on high speed data lines can cause numerous problems, including effecting quality and reliability," noted Talayeh Saderi, senior business development manager for TAEC. "Our new ESD diode helps to provide stable operation and reliability for these voltage-sensitive lines."
