Abstract
(EN)

A method and apparatus for electrostatic discharge protection for an optoelectronic device driven by an electrical link driver is provided. An AC coupled positive output of a differential mode electrical link driver is wire-bonded to an electrostatic discharge protector. The electrostatic discharge protector includes dual diodes for discharging electrical current resulting from an electrostatic discharge. In one embodiment, the electrostatic discharge protector protects the optoelectronic device from a 2 kV discharge per the human body model.
