Littelfuse Corporation, a global leader in circuit protection, recently introduced two AE-Q101 unidirectional TVS diode arrays, it specifically designed to protect I/O and power ports from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. The SP1053 and SP1054 series TVS Diode Arrays (SPA® diodes) integrate multiple avalanche breakdown diodes assembled with proprietary silicon avalanche technology to protect each pin. This type of device is a unidirectional fully-encapsulated transient suppression diode in a compact 01005 plastic package; these two features are the first in the transient suppression diode array market. This reliable diode safely absorbs repetitive ESD strikes at ±8kV (SP1053) or ±30kV (SP1054) without performance degradation. In addition, each diode can safely withstand 1.0A (SP1053) and 2.5A (SP1054) surges with very low clamping voltages
Typical applications for the SP1053 and SP1054 series include smart phones, camcorders, portable medical devices, digital cameras, wearable technology, portable navigation devices, tablet computers, point-of-sale terminals, and identification modules.
