Semtech Expands Its RClamp Product Platform to Protect Telecom and Industrial Applications from Surge and Electrostatic Discharge

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq:SMTC), a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products and advanced algorithms, has announced the launch of its newest product line of its RClamp® low-capacity surge protection product platform. This new four-wire transient voltage suppressor (TVS) array provides high-inrush, low-capacitance transient voltage protection and features a device layout that is easy to layout. The new RClamp2594N device also minimizes capacitive loading on high-speed interfaces as a product optimized for telecommunications and industrial data interfaces to provide excellent protection against dangerous transient voltages.

Focusing on telecommunication and industrial applications installed in harsh electrical environments, Semtech's new RClamp2594N array provides an unforgettable 35A (8x20μs waveform) surge protection and ±30kV contact/±30kV air ESD discharge protection rating . This product greatly exceeds industry-standard electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements, providing excellent clamping voltage performance while delivering only very low 2.1pF line-to-line capacitance.

"Semtech has been leading the protection of high-speed interfaces to protect them from damaging voltage transients. The RClamp2594N provides excellent transient voltage protection for high-speed data communication interfaces in telecommunications infrastructure equipment."

RClamp2594N key performance indicators include

Transient voltage protection capabilities of high-speed data lines are: IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) ±30kV (air), ±30kV (contact); IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) 40A (5/50ns); IEC 61000 -4-5 (lightning strike) 35A (8/20μs)
5V working voltage protection
High Surge Protection: 35A (tp=8/20μs)
Protects 4 I/O lines (2 differential pairs)
Low capacitance (line to line 2.1pF)
QFN package: 2.0mm x 3.0mm
Lead-free and RoHS/WEEE compliant
