Other Parts Discussed in Thread: STRIKE
I have a question regarding the clamping voltage of TPD4E05U06 which is rated for USB 3.0. In the datasheet on page 7, it is stated that the "Clamp Voltage" is rated as max. 14V. I would like to use TPD4E05U06 for the protection of CC- and D-lines on USB-C together with MAX77751 which has an absolute maximum rating of 6V for these lines.
- does "clamp voltage" mean that during ESD the maximum peak current will be "clamped"/limited to max. 14V?
- if so, will it potentially destroy MAX77751 because the CC and D lines are rated for a maximum of 6V?
- if so, do I have to find a part that has a max clamping voltage of less than 6V? This will be quite hard with such a narrow working span between reverse standoff voltage at 5-5.5V and clamping voltage at less than 6V.
- Or will my circuit survive because the peak voltage is too short and the ESD doesn't have enough energy?
