California Micro Devices Announces XtremeESD(R) Design Wins for New Sharp Aquos LCD TVs
“Sharp has specific requirements for higher levels of ESD protection combined with superior signal integrity performance for the HDMI ports,” stated
Picoguard XS Impedance Matching
The PicoGuard XS architecture integrates inductors with the ESD diodes to create fixed point impedance matching for high speed data lines. Traditionally, system designers compensate for the capacitance of the ESD protection device by adding external inductance and or eliminating capacitance under the signal traces. These approaches add complexity, cost, and are PCB board dependent, limiting the ability to use multiple board vendors. The CM1234 eliminates the need for these measures, providing matched impedance with no external compensation or components required. Compared with current best in class ESD diode arrays, the CM1234 offers a 40% reduction in peak clamping voltage and a 15-40% reduction in peak residual current.
