ESD Protection Devices (anti-static components)

Murata's ESD protection devices appearance.

An ESD protection device protects a circuit from an Electrostatic discharge (ESD), in order to prevent a malfunction or breakdown of an electronic device. Murata has an extensive lineup of ESD protection devices including specialized devices for high-speed communication, ultra-miniature devices, and integrated noise filters. These devices can also be used to replace varistors, zener diodes (TVS), and suppressors.

SubTitleIconInnovation Proposal for each solution

The following is an outline of recommended products for each solution including case examples.

High-speed data communication

We propose the following:
・Method of resolving the issue of deterioration of reception sensitivity in the cellular band due to noise in a differential transmission line

Near an antenna

We propose the following:
・Method of resolving the issue of high frequency noise in the cellular band when using a TVS as an ESD countermeasure
・Method of resolving the issues of insufficient ESD immunity and loss in the low frequency band when using L + C as an ESD countermeasure


We propose the following:
・Miniaturization of not only inductors and capacitors, but also ESD protection devices as well
・Method of eliminating worries concerning the mounting of 0603 (mm) and 0402 (mm) small LGA
