Monolithic component DVIULC6-4SC6 for an ESD protection of high speed signals is a guarantee of a high reliability and a long lifetime of devices, especially in an industrial environment.
You may have already had a device, which stopped functioning without an apparent cause, or even worse – it started functioning with unaccountable dropouts. The reason may have be very probably a damage by an electrostatic energy. Consequences of such a damage are always unpleasant and often hard to detect. In the most of cases it would be sufficient, if the device contained components of an ESD protection. Price of these components is a fraction of the price in comparison to potential damages, which an ESD (electrostatic discharge) can cause. For an efficient protection against a static energy it is usually necessary to meet two requirements: to use suitable protective components and also to carefully design a PCB with minimalization of parasitic inductancies.
Advantages / Features:
- ESD protection of 4 lines
- complies with IEC61000-4-2 level 4
- able to protect a power line (Vbus)
- ultra-low capacitancy 0.6pF/865 MHz
- high data integrity, usable up to 1.65Gbit/sec
- fast response
- SOT23-6L SMT package
- higher reliability thanks to a monolithic integration
DVIULC6-4SC6 is a modern component from ST Microelectronics intended for an ESD protection of a wide variety of high-speed lines like DVI, HDMI, IEEE1394, USB, ethernet, video lines and SIM cards in communication devices. In a miniature SOT23-6L SMT package it is able to protect 4 independent signals and also to protect power supply (Vbus/GND) thanks to an integrated transil. With an ultra-low 0.6 pF capacitance and an excellent capacitance matching to gnd, as well as between lines, ensures high level of signal integrity and enables troublefree protection of pair signals without asymmetric distortion up to 1.65 Gbit/sec speeds. DVIULC6-4SC6 represents an integrated monolithic solution with a high reliability, ensuring compliancy with existing ESD standards on the device level, hence greater immunity at a system level.

I work a lot with ESD sensitive stuff – ICs, transistors and other devices. And that means – if I don’t wanna kill em all I need to discharge often – which is quite annoying. But I happen to work with a computer, and a standard input device – the mouse. Which gave me a nice idea – use the Ground connection of the mouse to discharge me.

I recently got one unit that was destroyed due to an ESD (electrostatic discharge) event coming in from the power cord: the AMS1117 regulator that supplies the standby current for the CP and system management controller had been zapped. Interestingly, the unit worked for about an hour before it ceased operation.
This failure is particularly intriguing because there is a series of ESD protection devices between the AMS1117 and the power cord; at the front line, there is an AVX TransGuard transient voltage suppressor, then a set of EMI filters, diodes, fuses and so forth.
