The ESD204 is a bidirectional TVS ESD protection diode array for HDMI and USB surge protection up to 5.5 A (8/20 µs). The ESD204 is rated to dissipate ESD strikes at the maximum level specified in the IEC 61000-4-2 international standard (Level 4).

The low clamping and high differential bandwidth provided by ESD204 enables the device to cleanly pass high speed signals while providing robust protection to downstream devices. This device has a low capacitance of 0.55-pF per channel making it suitable for protecting high-speed interfaces up to 6 Gbps such as HDMI 2.0, HDMI 1.4, USB 3.0 and Ethernet 1G. The low dynamic resistance and low clamping voltage ensure system level protection against transient events.

The ESD204 is offered in the industry standard USON-10 (DQA) package. The package features flow-through routing and 0.5-mm pin pitch easing implementation and reducing design time.
