Semtech Expands its RClamp Platform

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced the latest addition to its RClamp® platform, the company said.

The four-line, 5V RClamp0504FB offers robust electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection and superior surge immunity in an industry standard six lead SC-70 package. This transient voltage suppression (TVS) array offers extensive interface protection versatility with its differentiated performance and small form factor, enabling use in data ports for industrial, Internet of Things (IoT) and telecommunication applications.

Exceeding industry standards for ESD immunity, the RClamp0504FB offers a 28A Ipp surge rating and is housed in a compact SC-70 package. This footprint presents hardware designers PCB space savings and the familiarity of an established multi-line package. The RClamp0504FB offers an extremely low typical capacitance of 1.1pF, making the device well suited for use in high speed differential interfaces.

Semtech provides reliable system-level Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) circuit protection solutions that meet the industry´s toughest requirements. Semtech ESD protection diodes feature low clamping voltage, low capacitance and low leakage current to protect your system interconnects from external ESD threats.
