SLVS953B June 2009 – August 2015 TPD2E009
TPD2E009 is a two-channel ESD TVS that provides ±8-kV IEC 61000-4-2 contact and air-gap ESD protection. The 0.7-pF unidirectional diode architecture is suitable for signals that range from 0 V to 5.5 V and can support data rates up to 6 Gbps. The industry-standard packages are convenient for placement in applications with limited space.
TPD2E009 is a unidirectional TVS offering IEC 61000-4-2 Level 4 Contact ESD protection. This device protects circuits from ESD strikes up to ±8-kV contact and ±8-kV air-gap. The device can also handle up to 5-A surge current (IEC 61000-4-5 8/20 μs). The low capacitance of 0.7 pF supports a data rate up to 6 Gbps. TPD2E009 has a small dynamic resistance of 1 Ω, which makes the clamping voltage low when the device is actively protecting other circuits. For example, the clamping voltage is only 8 V when the device is taking a 1-A transient current. Low leakage allows the diode to conserve power when working below the VRWM.
The TPD2E009 device is a passive clamp that has low leakage during normal operation when the voltage between an I/O pin and GND is below VRWM. The device activates when the voltage is between an I/O pin and GND goes above VBR. During ESD events, transient voltages as high as ±8 kV can be clamped between the protected line and ground. When the voltages on the protected lines fall below the trigger voltage, the device reverts back to the low-leakage passive state.
