CAN bus ESD protection diode

ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) protection diode in a small SOT23 (TO-236AB) Surface-Mounted Device (SMD) plastic package designed to protect two automotive Controller Area Network (CAN) bus lines from the damage caused by ESD and other transients.


  • One small SOT23 package to protect two CAN bus lines
  • Peak pulse power, max.: PPP = 200 W at tp = 8/20 µs
  • Low clamping voltage: VCL = 40 V at IPP = 1 A
  • Ultra low leakage current, typ.: IRM<1 nA
  • Diode capacitance matching, typ.: ΔCd/Cd = 0.1 %
  • ESD protection up to 23 kV; IEC 61000-4-2, level 4
  • IEC 61000-4-5 (surge); IPP = 3 A at tp = 8/20 µs
  • AEC-Q101 qualified

Target applications

  • CAN bus protection
  • Automotive applications
