’s (TOKYO:6502) Storage & Electronic Devices Solutions
Company today announced the launch of a new line-up of low-capacitance
TVS diodes [1] for use in high-speed interfaces in mobile
devices, including smartphones, tablet PCs and wearable devices. The new
diodes deliver the industry’s leading-class[2] protection
performance. The line-up covers ten products to protect high-speed
interfaces, including USB 3.0/3.1 and HDMI, from electronic discharge
(ESD) and noise. Shipments start from today.

The new series offers five products for 3.3V lines and five for 5.0V
lines, allowing users to select the product that matches the required
interface voltage of their system. The TVS diodes are fabricated with a
newly developed EAP-IV process[3], which utilizes Toshiba’s
proprietary snapback technology. It improves dynamic resistance, which
absorbs ESD and noise, by approximately 50% compared to Toshiba current
products[4], realizing a low clamping voltage. Furthermore,
static electricity tolerance is improved by approximately 75% against
Toshiba’s current products[4], which can contribute to
improvements in system reliability.

Also, depending on the mounting space of sets, users have a choice of
three packages. “SOD-962 (SL2)” (0.62 x 0.32mm) and “SOD-882(CST2)” (1.0
x 0.6mm) are small-size packages suited for multi-ports including the
increasingly adopted USB Type-C™. The flow-through “DFN10” package (2.5
x 1.0mm) reduces the inductance that occurs from wiring.
