System engineers must choose all components for their designs carefully. Picking the right ESD protection elements can be challenging as the matter of protecting devices on the PCB against ESD stress has become an increasingly complex task.

Texas Instruments offers a wide range of ESD protection elements. Understanding the datasheet parameters of ESD protection elements is paramount to the task of selecting the right protection element for a successful design.

This application note explains the key terminology, sections, and figures of an ESD protection device datasheet.
