What are ESD Protection & Diode Array devices?
ESD, or electrostatic discharge, is an energy transfer between two objects that are differently charged. ESD can short out or cause damage to electronic devices, which is why several electronic manufacturers protect their devices against ESD.
A diode array is an electronic component which consists of several diodes in a semiconductor package where the diodes may share a common cathode or anode, or where each may be separate.
Types of ESD Protection & Diode Arrays
There are several different kinds of ESD protection & diode arrays. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by No of Channels, Directional Type, Maximum Breakdown Voltage, Maximum Clamping Voltage, Capacitance, Operating Temperature Range and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for Maximum Clamping Voltage are 8 V, 15 V and 20 V. We also carry ESD protection & diode arrays with Maximum Clamping Voltage up to 11.5 kV. ESD Protection & Diode Arrays can be Bi-Directional, Uni-Directional or Uni-Directional/Bi-Directional.
