(<1ns) allowing equipment to pass IEC 61000-4-2 level 4 test
• Single-line, bi-directional device for placement flexibility
• Low profile 0402/1005 design for board space savings
• Low leakage current (<0.1nA typ.) reduces power consumption
• Computers & Peripherals
• PDA’s
• HDTV Equipment
• Digital Still Cameras
• USB 2.0
• DVD Players
• Digital Camcorders

• Infiniband®
The PolySurg™ 0402ESDA-MLP ESD Suppressors
protect valuable high-speed data circuits from ESD
damage without distorting data signals as a result of
its ultra-low (0.05pF typical) capacitance.

Design Considerations
The location in the circuit for the MLP series has to be carefully determined. For better performance, the device should be placed
as close to the signal input as possible and ahead of any other component. Due to the high current associated with an ESD
event, it is recommended to use a “0-stub” pad design (pad directly on the signal/data line and second pad directly on common

Electrical Characteristics
1. Per IEC61000-4-2, Level 4 waveform (8kV direct, 30A)
measured 30ns after initiation of pulse.
2. Trigger measurement made using Transmission Line Pulse
(TLP) method.
3. Minor shifting in characteristics may be observed over
multiple ESD pulses at very rapid rate.
