Santa Clara, Calif. OnChip Devices, Inc. claims it offers the industry's lowest capacitance electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection chip to support the HDMI 1.3 specification. The highly integrated ESD2100 solution provides a high-level of ESD protection, and supports the latest HDMI 1.3 specification, as well as previous HDMI standards.
The ESD2100 offers ultra-low line capacitance to ensure high signal integrity for video formats such as 1080p. The chip delivers up to 8 kV of ESD protection in contact discharge per IEC61000-4-2 standards for up to 8 channels. Total line capacitance for the chip is as low as 0.6 pF, with capacitance matching of less than 0.05 pF for TMDS pairs, said the company. The ESD2100 is offered in a variety of industry standard IC packages.
Pricing: $0.24 in quantities of 10,000.
Availability: The OnChip ESD2100-08MR ESD protection chip is available now.
