The AMC AZ1015-02N ESD Protection device is a high performance design which includes surge-rated diode arrays to protect high-speed data interfaces. The AZ1015-02N has been specifically designed to protect sensitive components that are connected to data and transmission lines, from over-voltage caused by Electrostatic Discharging (ESD), Electrical Fast Transients (EFT) and lightning.

AZ1015-02N is a unique design which includes surge-rated, low-capacitance steering diodes and unique design of clamping cell which is an equivalent TVS diode in a single package. During transient conditions, the steering diodes direct the transient to either the power supply line or to the ground line. The internal unique design of clamping cell prevents overvoltage on the power line, protecting any downstream components.

This low-capacitance ESD Protection Array is designed to protect two data lines and power rails from transient overvoltage (such as ESD stress pulse). When ESD voltage pulse appears on the data line, the ESD pulse current will be conducted by AZ1015-02N away from the USB controller chip, even when the pulse appears on the VBUS of the USB port. Therefore, the data lines and VBUS of the two ports are completely protected with this device. With regard to audio interference, the ESD pulse current will be discharged, thus completely protecting the right/left channels of the audio chip.
