GiGuard ESD Protection Diodes

AVX features their GiGuard GG Series ESD protection for high-speed circuits

Image of AVX's GiGuard ESD Protection DiodesAVX's GiGuard GG series components provide superior ESD protection for 5 V, high-speed circuits where low clamping voltages (less than 12 V at 1 A) and low capacitance (0.3 pf to 17 pf) are circuit requirements. The GiGuard series is an advanced, patented, bi-directional TVS diode with unique, leadless terminations that withstand a minimum of 15 kV and up to 30 kV of direct-contact ESD. The leadless design means the entire solder joint is visible to automated PCB camera systems, with nothing hidden underneath, and uses standard EIA pad layouts for EIA 0201/0402 cases. Additionally, the leadless design reduces the inductance of the GG part to that of a standard ceramic component, such as MLCC.


  • Ultra-low capacitance, 0.3 pf to 17 pf
  • Low clamping, VC at 1 A ranging from 6.5 V to 12 V
  • IEC61000-4-2 (level 4+), IEC61000-4-4 (EFT), very-fast CDM, and CDE certifications
  • Bi-directional protection
  • Leadless design, uses same SMP pad layout as EIA 0201/0402 case sizes with terminals fully visible to optical systems
  • Leakage current < 0.1 µA
  • High-speed data lines
  • Low-voltage RF circuits
  • Touchscreens
  • Network communications
  • USB 3.0
