Semtech's device protects I/o interface from dangerous surges

Date: 30/04/2014
Semtech has announced TClamp1202P, a transient voltage protection array offering 100A (8x20Ás waveform) of surge immunity for wide range of industrial and telecommunications applications for safeguarding sensitive communications transceivers from electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical fast transients (EFT), cable discharge and lightning surge transients.

TClamp1202P suggested for safeguarding RS-485 interfaces deployed in telecom and industrial applications such as wireless base stations and digital surveillance cameras.

Brief specs:
Transient protection for high-speed data lines to: IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) ▒30kV (air), ▒30kV (contact); IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) 40A (5/50ns); IEC 61000-4-5 (lightning) 100A (8/20Ás)
12V working voltage protection
High surge capability: 100A (tp=8/20Ás)
Protects two I/O lines
Low capacitance (<12pF line-to-line)
Ultra-small 2mm x 2mm package
Pb-free and RoHS/WEEE compliant
Pricing and Availability
The TClamp1202P (order code: TClamp1202P.TGT) is available immediately in production quantities and is priced at $0.56 each in 10,000-piece lots.
