TVS Device Protects Your USB On The Go (OTG) Phones, Computers And More


Diodes Incorporated introduced a TVS (transient voltage protection) device aimed to protect USB OTG (On The Go) applications. The rugged TVS device offers surge protection for USB data and power connections in consumer and mobile communications products with a USB interface, especially those employing the new USB PD (Power Delivery) protocol that supports quick charging and higher power connections. Examples include computers, peripherals, cell-phones, and more.

The D5V0F3B6LP20 provides four channels of ESD protection. It integrates three bi directional I/O channels and one VBUS channel, which provides 3.2kW of lightning surge stress protection for the VBUS power line, with a peak pulse current (IPP2) up to 80A in compliance with IEC61000-4-5 requirements.

The high-speed dataline channel capacitance of 0.4pF allows up to 6GHz of data transmission without affecting signal integrity. This low channel capacitance ensures compatibility with high-speed data ports such as USB 2.0 OTG (on-the-go) and the device is also capable of supporting USB 3.x data rates.


The ultra-low channel leakage specification of 50nA allows for ultra-low battery drain in mobile devices. Thereby, it meets application requirements that demand ultra-low leakage, such as medical equipment.

To enable compact PCB layouts, the TVS diode array is offered in a small-footprint, low-profile, industry-standard DFN2020 package.
