The ChipGuard® MLU Series has been specifically designed to protect sensitive electronic components from electrostatic discharge damage. The MLU family has been designed to protect equipment to IEC61000-4-2, Level 4 (±8 kV Contact / ±15 kV Air Discharge) ESD specifications targeted for high speed USB 3.0/USB OTG, HDMI 1.4, DVI or IEEE1394 applications.

The ChipGuard® MLU Series has been manufactured to provide low 0.05 pF capacitance and leakage currents less than 5 nA with excellent clamp qualities, making the family almost transparent under normal working conditions.
