Tyco Electronics’ Industry’s First EST and Overcurrent Reference layout for HDMI 1.3 Interfaces Based on Passive Protection Devices

Supported Autodesk Products:HDMI

Tyco Electronics introduces a reference layout using ESD and overcurrent protection for HDMI™ 1.3 interfaces. The reference layout utilizes our low-capacitance (0.25pF signal to ground) PESD protection devices, and space-effective component placement and routing to help protect against ESD events and optimize board space. The reference layout also includes optional overcurrent protection on the +5V rail, using the PolySwitch™ nanoSMD device.

Developed in conjunction with Efficere, Inc., a leader in high-speed interface design and test, our new reference layout for HDMI 1.3 meets or exceeds the HDMI 1.3 specifications for operation at 3.4Gbps for Impedance (TDR), Data Eye, and Far End Crosstalk.

“Achieving the optimum signal integrity and crosstalk performance with HDMI layouts is complicated, and adding ESD protection amplifies the design challenge,” said Efficere Technologies Vice President of Sales, Joe O’Brien. “Efficere has worked with Tyco Electronics to develop a layout with ESD protection that exceeds HDMI 1.3 requirements, and can help reduce electronic equipment manufacturers’ time to market.”

The bi-directional PESD0603 or PESD0402 devices are configured in a very small space behind the HDMI connector and help designers meet the IEC 61000-4-2 standard for ESD protection (+/-15kV for air, +/-8kV for contact). The PESD devices are offered in EIA standard 0603 and 0402 sizes and can be used in various end applications including DisplayPort, WiMAX and cellular base stations, eSATA, and other high-speed data and analog interfaces.
