Stackpole's ESD Suppressors Protect High Speed Data

Stackpole's ESD suppressor is designed to protect high speed data line communication ports, like HDMI and USB 2.0 or higher, from ESD strikes. The ESD Series offers capacitance as low as 0.01 pF which preserves signal integrity at data rates near 5 GHz. The air gap technology allows for superior protection while maintaining very low leakage current. However, Stackpole's unique air gap technology offers protection for thousands of ESD events versus the polymer gap devices, which can degrade after only a few ESD events.

HCS Series AEC-Q200 Qualified High Current Shunts

Stackpole’s popular HCS series is fully compliant with AEC-Q200. AEC-Q200 requires the resistors to have an operating temperature range of -55°C to +150°C and survive a wide range of electrical and mechanical stress tests. These tests include exposure to high temperatures, temperature cycling, high temperature operational life, biased humidity, ESD, board flex, and terminal strength. Components qualified to AEC-Q200 provide engineers additional assurance that they are designing in a robust and reliable component. In addition, the raised resistance element offers lower thermal resistance meaning lower PCB temperatures and easier implementation for high current usage.
