Semtech Corp. announced the TClamp3302N, a 3.3V, low-capacitance TVS device. TClamp3302N is the newest addition to the TClamp product platform of protection technology designed to protect high-speed interfaces such as Fast Ethernet and GbE transceivers from cable discharge, ESD and lightning threats.

Semtech's TClamp device provides telecom/datacom system designers with a small 3.3V working voltage protection device rated for 100A GR-1089 intra-building lightning surge. According to Semtech, the protection device delivers high electrical performance yet consumes 4.5x less board space than competitive devices.

Semtech's TClamp3302N is provided in an SLP package measuring 2.6mm x 2.6mm x 0.6mm, which requires 6.76mm board space, compared to the industry's current SO-8 packaged devices, which measures 5.8mm x 4.8mm x 1.35mm and consumes 27.84mm? board space.

Pricing starts at $1.37 each in 1,000-piece lots. Devices are available immediately in production quantities.
