open-in-new Find other ESD protection & TVS surge diodes


The ESD224 is a bidirectional TVS ESD protection diode array for high speed applications such as USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.0. The ESD224 is rated to dissipate ESD strikes at the maximum level specified in the IEC 61000-4-2 international standard (Level 4). The ESD224 employs on-chip differentially matched series elements to enhance down-stream ESD clamping performance while maintaining the signal compliance for high speed interfaces. The ultra-low clamping performance and high differential bandwidth provided by the ESD224 on-chip ESD protection network enables the device to be HDMI 2.0 compliant while providing robust protection to downstream HDMI devices.

The ESD224 is offered in the industry standard USON-10 (DQA) package. The package features 0.5-mm pin pitch easing implementation and reducing design time.
