Tempe, Ariz. − ProTek Devices has introduced a very low capacitance transient voltage suppressor (TVS) array designed to protect computing applications from electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electrical fast transients (EFT). Applications include Ethernet 10/100/1000 Base T, FireWire, wireless communications devices, and USB interfaces.
One of the key features of the PLR3311 TVS array is its low capacitance of 5 pF (typical) and low leakage current. The device, which protects one bidirectional line, offers 40 watts peak pulse power per line (tp = 8/20 micro amps), a low clamping voltage, and a rated 3.3 stand-off voltage. The operating and storage temperature is -55 to 150 degrees Celsius.
Designed to meet insertion loss and signal integrity concerns at higher operating frequencies or faster edge rates, the TVS array meets IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) and IEC 61000-4-5 (surge) standards requirements. The device is RoHS and REACH compliant.
The PLR3311 is provided in a molded JEDEC DFN-2-0402 package. It weighs approximately two milligrams. The package features lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed), and a solder reflow temperature (pure-tin - Sn, 100) of 260-270 degrees Celsius. It has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.
