AEC-Qualified ESD Diode for Automotive Circuit Protection
New circuit protection diode suited for automotive applications, such as Controller Area Network (CAN) bus lines. The new PAM3CAN diode is qualified by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC). The PAM3CAN is designed to protect two automotive CAN bus lines from the damaging effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD) and other electrical fast transients (EFT). In addition to being AEC-qualified, the new ESD diode is compatible with several IEC standards.
