A cost effective solution for protecting multiple bus lines against potential TVS or ESD surges is the dual bi-directional common cathode zener diode in the SOT-223 package (Figure I). The part has a minimum power dissipation of 200W and can be manufactured in various voltages (5-50 V) and capacitances (50-500 pF).
