An Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) strike is a constant threat to device reliability and functionality. Many low-voltage core chips or system ASICs only offer device-level Human-Body Model (HBM) ESD device protection, which doesn’t address the risks of system-level ESD strikes.
TI’s stand-alone ESD protection devices provide a space-saving and cost-effective solution to protect the system interconnects from external ESD strikes. The TPD product family of devices from TI provides IEC 61000-4-2 level ESD protection, with solutions for multiple external interfaces, including video, audio and serial data transfer. TI’s TPD family of devices meet requirements for low-power, small footprint applications making them ideal for multiple markets, including mobile computing, mobile handsets and consumer electronics.
TI produces ESD protection solutions that protect the majority of external connections to the outside world.
