Diode arrays give CAN networks ESD protection up to 30 kV

Infineon Technologies developed a family of TVS (transient voltage suppressor) diode arrays intended to protect CAN (controller area network) automotive control networks and industrial bus systems from voltage spikes as high as 30 kV. The dual-channel, bi-directional and uni-directional ESD24V diode arrays are available in the industry-standard SOT23 package.
