MSP430FR2676: TVS diode recommendation for ESD protection

Part Number: MSP430FR2676
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPD1E10B06


My customer is designing the system using CapTIvate device and they have a question for ESD protection.
According to design guide and Fig. 100 at below URL, an external TVS diode is added.

Q1) Do you have any recommended TVS diode part#?

Q2) What is expected side effects to CapTIvate functionality caused by an external TVS diode?

Q3) What kinds of parameters need to be considered to select TVS diode?

Thanks and regards,
Koichiro Tashiro
