The SP1013 and SP1014 TVS Diode Arrays fit into a standard 0201 footprint (0.52×0.27mm), but offer a 30 percent reduction in the board space required over other 0201 outline solutions, allowing more clearance between components.
The SP1020 and SP1021 Series are packaged in the industry’s smallest ESD protection footprint, a 01005 flip chip measuring 0.181×0.230×0.440mm, while providing nearly 78 percent lower capacitance than similar market solutions.

All four products feature back-to-back zener diodes to protect electronic equipment that may experience destructive electrostatic discharges (ESD). The back-to-back configuration provides symmetrical ESD protection for data or signal lines when AC signals are present.

These robust diodes can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard (Level 4, ±8kV contact discharge) without performance degradation.
The SP1020 and SP1021 Series’ very low dynamic resistance (0.32Ω) supports low clamping voltage needed for protecting modern electronics filled with small-geometry ICs. Low capacitance of 30pF (SP1013) and 6pF (SP1014) helps to preserve signal integrity and minimize data loss while offering more robust devices against electrical threats.

Back-to-back 5V standoff (SP1013 and SP1014) or 6V standoff (SP1020 and SP1021) permits protection of most of the current and future user interfaces.
