New automotive TrEOS ESD protection from Nexperia combines high signal integrity, low clamping voltage and high surge robustness

September 15, 2020

Nijmegen -- Industry-benchmark performance devices now AEC-Q101 qualified - protecting infotainment, multimedia and ADAS systems.

Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, has introduced four new TrEOS ESD protection devices that are AEC-Q101- qualified for automotive use and high temperature capable up to 175°C. In common with all TrEOS components, the new parts combine extremely low capacitance ensuring high signal integrity, extremely low clamping and high robustness for modern automotive interfaces. Specific automotive applications include infotainment, multimedia and ADAS systems featuring USB 3.2, HDMI, LVDS, SerDes and SD-card interfaces.

Nexperia’s TrEOS ESD protection technology uses active silicon-controlled rectification to overcome the traditional protection trade-off challenge. Capacitance is kept down to 0.5 pF, clamping voltage is just 3 V and devices can withstand surge and ESD pulses up to 10 A 8/20 µs. This industry-leading performance in all areas is delivered in the extensively-proven SOT23 package

Lukas Droemer, Nexperia product manager commented: “Our TrEOS technology has set the industry benchmark for mobile and computing ESD protection since its launch in 2015. Now, as there is a demand for more and more connectivity in vehicles, Nexperia is continuing to qualify its TrEOS ESD protection portfolio for the automotive sector. With these new parts, automotive design engineers can empower their new systems with the efficiency of TrEOS ESD protection while improving system-level robustness."

The first four PESD2USBx-T series AEC-Q101-qualified TrEOS ESD protection devices are in mass production now. More information including product specs and datasheets is available at www.nexperia.com/automotive-infotainment-serdes
