ESD protection array for high-speed data interfaces

ESD protection array for high-speed data interfaces
Texas Instruments' TPD4E001-Q1 device is a low-capacitance TVS diode array designed for ESD protection in sensitive electronics connected to communication lines. Each channel consists of a pair of transient-voltage-suppression diodes that steer ESD pulses to VCC or GND. The TPD4E001-Q1 protects against ESD events up to ±8kV contact discharge and ±15kV air-gap discharge, as specified in IEC 61000-4-2 international standard.

Design dilemma solved for the 5G-ready connected car

Design dilemma solved for the 5G-ready connected car
Can you imagine driving along with 18 antennas sticking out of your car? The latest predictions are saying that the modern connected car might need as many as 18 antennae to provide all relevant services. With that in mind, HARMAN has announced a 5G-ready, multiband conformal antenna for cars, which combines multiple antennae in one module that can be mounted below a vehicle’s body panels, allowing car makers new possibilities for vehicle design.
