CS0816 - Low Capacitance TVS Protection


  • Ultra low leakage current (<1μA) at working voltage of 5.0V
  • Pretty lower leakage current among IOs
  • Ultra low parasitic capacitance (<1pF) to ensure signal integrity
  • Good capacitance uniformity in the range of 0V to 5.0V
  • Lower trigger voltage to  response earlier under ESD events
  • Ultra lower clamping voltage to protect ICs well
  • Above ±20KV ESD protection level
  • Tiny packageSOT23-6L


CS0816 is a low capacitance Transient Voltage Suppressor (TVS) designed to provide electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for high-speed data interfaces. With typical capacitance of 0.7pF only, CS0816 is designed to protect parasitic-sensitive systems against over-voltage and over-current transient events. It complies with IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), Level 4 (±15kV air, ±8kV contact discharge), IEC 61000-4-4 (electrical fast transient - EFT) (40A, 5/50 ns), very fast charged device model (CDM) ESD and cable discharge event (CDE), etc.

CS0816 uses small SOT23-6L package. Each CS0816 device can protect four high-speed data lines. The combined features of low capacitance, small size and high ESD robustness make CS0816 ideal for high-speed data ports and high-frequency lines (e.g., HDMI & DVI) applications. The low clamping voltage of the CS0816 guarantees a minimum stress on the protected IC.
