Due to the ongoing miniaturization, today’s electronic devices are more and more sensitive to electrostatic discharges (ESD). Therefore reliable protection components become absolutely necessary to safeguard your valuable electronics against the impact of ESD.
CeraDiodes are ceramic semiconductors optimized specifically for high performance in ESD applications. They have a non-linear voltage/current characteristic for effectively suppressing extremely fast voltage transients and offer superior parametric stability over the complete operating range of –40 °C to +85 °C.
CeraDiodes are bi-directional devices. A single CeraDiode connected from signal/data line to ground routes both positive and negative ESD transitions safely to the ground plane. This technique eliminates the need to route ESD charge into the power plane, possibly damaging nearby integrated circuits. CeraDiodes for high-speed lines exhibits a very low capacitance designed for maximum ESD protection combined with minimal signal distortion.
