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.

Murata Icon X What are ESD Protection Device ?

≪Functions required for ESD protection device≫

Not ESD issue: Insulated from GND with IC drive voltage.
ESD issue: Conducts with GND and releases high voltage to GND.

Murata Icon X Breakdown voltage

Breakdown voltage means voltage at which 1mA current flow.

Murata Icon X Unidirectional / Bidirectional TVS

Unidirectional : current starts to flow the breakdown voltage on one side.
Bidirectional : current starts to flow at the same voltage.
