Device provides ultra low capacitance down to 0.37 pF, typical for interface protection in commercial and automotive applications

Vishay Intertechnology has released a new bidirectional symmetrical (BiSy) 2-line ESD protection diode in the compact DFN1110-3A package with wettable flanks. Saving space over solutions in SOT packages, the Vishay Semiconductors VBUS05M2-HT5 offers ultra-low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals.

Offering a low load capacitance of 0.37 pF typical, the device is optimised for interface protection including USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and HDMI in commercial applications. For automotive applications, the VBUS05M2-HT5 is also available in an AEC-Q101 qualified version. The protection diode features a low maximum leakage current of < 0.1 μA at the working voltage of ± 5.5 V, a breakdown voltage of 8.5 V typical at 1 mA, and a maximum clamping voltage of 18 V at 3.4 A.

The VBUS05M2-HT5 provides transient protection for data lines as per IEC 61000‑4‑2 at ± 20 kV (air and contact discharge). The device offers a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 1 as per J-STD-020 and a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay Green, the protection diode supports automated optical inspection (AOI) for automotive systems.

Samples and production quantities of the VBUS05M2-HT5 are available now.
