Protection devices stop surges in HDMI applications

Two new RailClamp protection devices from Semtech Corp. are designed to protect data interfaces operating at speeds higher than 2 GHz. With a typical line-to-line capacitance of 0.7 pF, these RClamp 0502B and RClamp 0514M devices are ideal for HDMI applications such as plasma displays, high definition TVs, and set-top boxes.
