Vishay Intertechnology released a new 4-line ESD protection array for portable electronics in the ultra-compact chip-level CLP1007-5L package.

The VBUS54FD-SD1 offers low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals. Measuring only 1.0x0.7x0.27mm, the protection array uses 70 % less board space than previous-generation devices and provides a sevenfold reduction in volume. Offering a low load capacitance of 0.9 pF typical and a "flow through" design, the VBUS54FD-SD1 is optimized for the protection of high-speed data lines including HDMI, DisplayPort, eSATA, USB 3.0, 1394 / FireWire, and Thunderbolt in mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and portable gaming systems. The protection array features a low maximum leakage current of under 0.1μA at the working voltage of 5.5 V, a breakdown voltage of 7.5 V typical at 1 mA, and a maximum clamping voltage of 15 V at 3 A. The VBUS54FD-SD1 provides transient protection for data lines as per IEC 61000 4 2 at ± 15 kV (air and contact discharge).
