Semtech Corp. has announced the TClamp1201S, a 12V, low-capacitance protection device for xDSL applications that features low clamping voltage and a flow-through package design to protect new xDSL line drivers.

The TClamp1201S is part of Semtech's family of low capacitance TVS arrays designed to protect high-speed xDSL interfaces. This product platform is specifically designed to protect sensitive components from overvoltage caused by ESD, cable discharge events (CDE) and lightning.

The TClamp1201S offers a very low clamping voltage performance to protect sensitive ICs from damage while also presenting a minimal capacitance in order to maintain signal integrity. In addition to ADSL and VDSL applications, the part is ideal for protecting RS-232 serial ports.

The device features the use of a six-pin flow-through package design that grants designers flexibility in routing traces and ease in facilitating either common mode or differential configuration.

Pricing starts at 28 cents each in 1,000-piece lots. Devices are available immediately in production quantities.
