Littelfuse : XGD series ESD suppressors reduce power consumption and ensure data integrity

Drive and Protections

The XGD series XTREME-GUARD™ ESD suppressors from Littelfuse protect sensitive electronics devices such as the Ethernet and CAN ports in industrial-automation equipment against electrostatic discharges as high as 30kV. Available in 0402-and 0603-sized surface-mount packages, they are suitable for high-voltage applications up to 32V DC.

The devices can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes nearly four times the maximum level specified in the IEC 61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation. Even after multiple ESD strikes, current leakage remains below 1nA, ensuring minimal power losses.

• Low capacitance
• Ideal for high-frequency and high-speed data, video, antenna and I/O circuits
