ST has optimized the protection to meet the different needs of the main and auxiliary data channels defined in the DisplayPort Vesa 1.1a standard. Moreover, although the protection device is capable of blocking hazardous voltage spikes, it is effectively transparent to the high-speed data signals and allows them to pass virtually undistorted at the highest possible speed and power to ensure consistent high-quality multimedia experiences for users.
Main features of the DPIULC6-6DJL:
- 5GHz bandwidth
- 100 ohm +/- 10% characteristic impedance (100% compatible with 100 ohm differential layout)
- Capacitance defined according to Vesa 1.1a standard: less than 1.5pF
- Low capacitance variation: 0.05pF
- Pin-out optimized for easy PCB design
- Meets applicable standards:
- IEC 61000-4-2 level 4-15kV (air discharge); 8kV (contact discharge)
- MIL STD 883G-Method 3015-7: class 3B 8kV HBM (Human Body Model)
- VESA DisplayPort Standard Version 1.1a
The DPIULC6-6DJL is available now in a 5 x 6mm leadless QFN package featuring 18 I/Os; pricing starts at $0.30 for orders more than 3000 pieces.
DisplayPort is a standard approved by VESA, the Video Electronics Standards Association, which provides an all-digital interconnect suitable for box-to-box interconnection as well as internal connections to an LCD panel. As a high-performance successor to established standards such as VGA and DVI, currently supporting data rates up to 2.7Gbit/s, DisplayPort allows the higher color depths, refresh rates and display resolutions of the latest monitors. The standard also provides for future scalability, hence presenting a long-term stable platform for future product development.
