ESD protection & TVS surge diodes overview

Comprehensive portfolio of protection solutions for ESD and surge events

ESD & TVS surge protection diodes provide your system with immunity to ESD and surge transient voltages. Our portfolio provides many options, including single diodes and multi diode array in industry-standard packages. This allows flexibility in design and helps you avoid system failures caused by ESD strikes while supporting high signal integrity.
