LVDS ESD Protection
LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signalling) Technologies are commonly used for high-speed communication in electronics systems and sub-systems. From ADAS cameras to telecommunication backhaul to high-speed chip to chip communication, LVDS is everywhere. LVDS is now used extensively in several portable applications for chip-to-chip communication. It provides an attractive solution - a small swing differential signal for fast data transfers at significantly reduced power and with excellent noise immunity. The small feature size and transistor geometries of LVDS transceivers make them especially vulnerable to ESD and fast rise-time transient threats. Semtech offers industry leading, low-clamping voltage, low-capacitance TVS arrays to safeguard LVDS transceivers from latch-up and latent transient damage.
