EPCOS Provides Protection Device to Safeguard USB ports

EPCOS CDA6 1012Although not flashy news, EPCOS introduced a new CeraDiode which provides protection to USB ports from either high or low voltages shot through the system from a, not so good, USB device. The CeraDiode CDA6 is a small diode placed on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) that truncates positive or negative spikes of voltage to protect the internal circuitry and components of the host product. Might not sound like much to the average user, but this chip means fewer and fewer USB devices will short out it’s host (computer, notebook, set-top boxes) which ultimately means you save money from having to re-buy or repair stuff. Geek yourself out with the CDA6 1012 spec sheet.EPCOS ceradiode
