25 picoFarad (pF) max capacitance making it a highly optimized solution for high speed interfaces such as USB 3.
4 picofarad (pF) rating, while maintaining extremely low ESD clamping voltage.
6 picofarad (pF), and is suitable for protecting very-high-speed data lines, such as USB and HDMI, or low-voltage antenna ports.
Their inherently low differential capacitance of less than 3 picofarad (pF) across the operating voltage range precludes signal distortion on the high speed data line.
5 picofarad (pF) typical, the devices ensure that data-line speeds are maintained and guarantee the integrity of the data.
