TVS diode for USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 ESD Protection
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (AOS) has launched a range of Ultra-Low Reverse Working Voltage (VRWM) transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diodes for Type-C USB connectors.
Designed to deliver extremely low capacitance and fast response time, the AOZ8S207BLS-01 TVS diode offers superior high-speed data line protection based on AOS’ advanced Ultra-Low Breakdown Voltage (VBR) TVS platform and innovative packaging.
These features, along with the TVS diode’s 0.15pf capacitance make it suitable for interconnect protection, especially for USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.
Low breakdown voltage is essential for ESD protection devices, especially when protecting ICs manufactured with the finest process. AOZ8S207BLS-01 features an especially low breakdown voltage, and it can provide a faster response time compared to conventional snap-back devices, enabling it to absorb ESD energy extremely quickly to avoid damage to the IC and surrounding components.
The single channel AOZ8S207BLS-01 is housed in a 0.6×0.3mm leadless Surface-Mounted Device (SMD) package to fit into USB Type-C connectors
