The HSP061-4NY8 is a 4-channel ESD array with a rail-to-rail plus Transil architecture designed specifically for the protection of high-speed differential lines. The ultra-low variation of the capacitance ensures very low influence on signal-skew. The HSP061-4NY8 provides the industry with a single orderable part capable of protecting circuits using any of these multi-gigabit standards, enabling economies of scale as well as significant advantages in efficiency throughout product design, purchasing, and assembly. The device contains a network of Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) diodes capable of protecting two pairs of high-speed differential data lines. These diodes are sufficient to provide complete protection for the 5.0 Gbit/s SuperSpeed bus defined in the new USB 3.0 specification. A single HSP061-4NY8 can also protect all the data lines of an HDMI port, an entire channel in SATA interfaces, up to and including the latest 6Gbit/s SATA 3.0 standard, or a two-lane DisplayPort interface. The large bandwidth and the low time domain reflection make it compatible with 3.4 Gbit/s (HDMI), but also with most high-speed lines (DVI, DisplayPort, USB3.0, SATA). This device is housed in a µQFN 2×1-8L package with a 400 µm pitch, which minimizes the PCB area. As of today, this is the smallest device on the market to protect 4 high-speed lines…
