SLVSEE2A February 2018 – April 2018 ESD204
ESD204 provides ESD protection up to ±30-kV contact and ±30-kV air gap per IEC61000-4-2 standard. During an ESD event, ESD diode connected to the IO pin turns on and diverts the ESD current to ground. Additionally, ESD204 also provides protection against IEC 61000-4-5 surge currents up to 5.5 A (8/20 µs waveform) and up to 80 A per IEC 61000-4-4 electrical fast transient (EFT) standard. Please see the Application Note on IEC61000-4-x standard based tests. ESD204 provides a very low clamping voltage of 11.5 V at 16 A 100 ns TLP current and 8.5 V at 5.5 A surge current (8/20 µs waveform).
The capacitance between each I/O pin to ground is 0.55 pF (typical) and 0.65 pF (maximum). This device supports data rates up to 6 Gbps. The DC breakdown voltage of each I/O pin is a minimum of ±5 V. This ensures that sensitive equipment is protected from surges above the reverse standoff voltage of ±3.6 V. The I/O pins feature an ultra-low leakage current of 10 nA (maximum) with a bias of ±3.6 V.
