SP1012 Series TVS Diode Array Puts Five ESD Diodes
in the Space of One

Combines high ESD immunity and superior protection
in a compact flipchip package

The miniature, five-channel 6.5pF, 15kV SP1012 Series TVS Diode Array packs five ESD diodes in a 0402-size (0.94mm x 0.61mm) flipchip package that would normally contain only one, so it offers a 5x improvement over previous implementations. By providing the highest number of ESD diodes available in a package less than a square millimeter in size, the SP1012 Series helps circuit designers economize on both printed circuit board (PCB) space and costs. These robust diodes can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes at the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation. Its bidirectional configuration provides symmetrical ESD protection for data lines when AC signals are present.

Product Features:

  • Sets a new standard new paradigm: most ESD protection diodes per square millimeter
  • Promotes high ESD immunity and superior protection
  • ESD: IEC61000-4-2, ±15kV
  • Lightning: IEC61000-4-5, 3A
  • EFT: IEC61000-4-4, 40A
  • Very low dynamic resistance of 0.48Ω
  • Flexible ground connection; any I/O pad will work
  • Permits back-to-back 6V standoff

Customer Benefits:

  • ESD diodes in an 0402 size footprint (0.94mm x 0.61mm) represents a 5x
  • improvement over previous implementations, saving PCB area/cost
  • ESD protection beyond the maximum rating in the IEC61000-4-2 standard gives engineers more design margin and higher end product reliability in the field
  • Supports low clamping voltages needed for protecting modern electronics filled with small-geometry ICs
  • Designer friendly; permits flexible routing, connect to closest available ground
  • Standoff voltages enable protection of 95 percent of all interfaces
