USB Type-C ESD protection evaluation board

The NEVB21-USBC1 is an evaluation board for showcasing miniaturized ESD protection on the USB Type-C port. It features Nexperia’s new DFN0603-3 package which offers a 2-channel protection solution inside an industry standard 0201” (0603 mm) package. The DFN0603-3 footprint improves the RF behavior by less return loss through smaller solder pads.
