GiGuard series ESD suppression diodes use the latest TVS technology and a unique lead-free package to provide a clamping voltage below 12V and a capacitance value as low as 0.3pfd. This superior fusion can both mask sensitive ICs through ESD events while maintaining the integrity of protected high-speed signals. This series is ideal for mounting on the same PCB pads as standard EIA 0201/0402 components.
This series complies with IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), Class 4+ (± 20kV air, ± 20kV contact discharge), IEC 61000-4-4 (electrical fast transient-EFT) (20A, 5/50 ns), Fast-charging device models ESD and cable discharge events.
Dean Beckley, Global Business Manager of AVX, said: "The GiGuard series diodes have a unique lead-free design that fits perfectly with the layout of standard 0201 and 0402 SMP pads, and their electrical performance characteristics are particularly suitable for high-speed data and signal applications. Therefore, the Gigant series diodes Provides excellent ESD protection while preserving critical board space. "
