3-Channel, Low-Leakage ESD Protector

Low-Capacitance, 3-Channel, ESD-Protection Array in SC70

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX14541E low-capacitance ±15kV ESD-protection diode array is designed to protect sensitive electronics attached to communication lines. Each channel consists of a pair of diodes that steer ESD current pulses to VCC or GND.

The MAX14541E protects against ESD pulses up to ±15kV Human Body Model (HBM) and ±15kV Air-Gap Discharge, as specified in IEC 61000-4-2. The device has a 6pF (typ) on-capacitance per channel, making them ideal for use on high-speed data I/O interfaces.

The MAX14541E is a triple I/O protector designed for biometric connectors, portable connectors, and SVGA video connections with ultra-low leakage current.

The device is available in a 5-pin SC70 package and is specified over the -40°C to +125°C automotive operating temperature range.
