Increasing The DS276X Battery Monitor and Protector ESD Protection Levels

Abstract: An important consideration in battery pack electronics design is protecting against the susceptibility to an ESD event. This application note presents a DS276x battery monitor and protector application circuit that can extend the ESD protection beyond the standard IEC1000-4-2 specifications of 8kV contact and 15kV air. Specific components to be used are presented as well as specific circuit layout considerations that should be considered to maximize ESD protection.
