AOZ8S207BLS-01 VRWM TVS has low breakdown voltage and fast response
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (AOS) said that its AOZ8S207BLS-01 low reverse working voltage (VRWM) transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diode is designed to deliver low “extremely low” capacitance and fast response time.
High speed data line protection is based on the company’s ultra-low breakdown voltage (VBR) TVS platform. The TVS diode’s 0.15pf capacitance makes it suitable for USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, added the company.
AOZ8S207BLS-01 features an especially low breakdown voltage, continued AOS, and it can provide a faster response time compared to conventional snap-back devices, enabling it to absorb ESD energy extremely quickly to avoid damage to the IC and surrounding components. In addition, the single-channel device is housed in a 0.6 x 0.3mm leadless surface-mounted device (SMD) package, ensuring it is able to meet the small footprint requirements of USB Type-C connectors.
According to Charles Chen, marketing director at AOS, the new TVS platform provides a better figure of merit (FOM) on clamping voltage times capacitance. “In addition to low capacitance, having a lower clamping voltage and faster response during an ESD event is important to protect today’s more ESD-sensitive chipsets,” he said. It can be used for high speed data line protection for Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 applications to reduce ESD failure rates.
The AOZ8S207BLS-01 TVS diode is immediately available in production quantities with a lead time of 16 weeks.
