With such a low capacitance of 0.15pF, AOZ8661BDT-05 is optimized for high-speed line protection including but not limited to USB3.1 Gen2, USB3.2, Thunderbolt 3.0, and avoiding the transmission error by minimizing the capacitance effect. AOZ8661BDT-05 is housed in a 0.6x0.3mm leadless Surface-Mounted Device (SMD) and perfectly suited to fit the small footprint requirement of a USB Type-C connector.

“As the leading vendor in ESD protection solution in high-speed interfaces such as USB, HDMI, and Thunderbolt, we have released a new TVS platform that provides a much better figure of merit (FOM) on the clamping voltage times capacitance. In addition to low capacitance, it is also important to have lower clamping voltage and faster response during the ESD event to protect the ESD sensitive chipset. The new platform of Super Low Cap with very low capacitance and very low clamping voltage is ideal for high-speed line protection,” said Michael K. S. Ng, Sr. Marketing Manager of TVS Product Line at AOS. “We believe the new competitive platform will contribute to reducing the ESD failure rate in our partners and customers’ electronic products.”

Pricing and Availability

The AOZ8661BDT-05 is immediately available in production quantities with a lead-time of 16 weeks. The unit price for 1,000 pieces is $0.09.
