(AOS) (Nasdaq: AOSL) a designer,
developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors
and power ICs, today announced the release of AOZ8661BDT-05
a transient voltage suppressor (TVS) for high-speed line protection
using the latest Super Low Cap TVS platform. This new device is ideal
for USB Type-C applications such as notebooks and mobile devices.

With such a low capacitance of 0.15pF, AOZ8661BDT-05 is optimized for
high-speed line protection including but not limited to USB3.1 Gen2,
USB3.2, Thunderbolt 3.0, and avoiding the transmission error by
minimizing the capacitance effect. AOZ8661BDT-05 is housed in a
0.6×0.3mm leadless Surface-Mounted Device (SMD) and perfectly suited to
fit the small footprint requirement of a USB Type-C connector.

“As the leading vendor in ESD protection solution in high-speed
interfaces such as USB, HDMI, and Thunderbolt, we have released a new
TVS platform that provides a much better figure of merit (FOM) on the
clamping voltage times capacitance. In addition to low capacitance, it
is also important to have lower clamping voltage and faster response
during the ESD event to protect the ESD sensitive chipset. The new
platform of Super Low Cap with very low capacitance and very low
clamping voltage is ideal for high-speed line protection,” said Michael
K. S. Ng, Sr. Marketing Manager of TVS Product Line at AOS. “We believe
the new competitive platform will contribute to reducing the ESD failure
rate in our partners and customers’ electronic products.”

Pricing and Availability

The AOZ8661BDT-05 is immediately available in production quantities with
a lead-time of 16 weeks. The unit price for 1,000 pieces is $0.09.
