Below is my circuit,
ESD Capacitors Specifications :
C0001, C0002, C0003, C0004 = 47nF, 100V, 10%, 0805 I have 2 basic questions :
When a +4kV pulse & 330pF is applied, Does the 12.77V (Q=CV ; Q =4kV * 150pF = 600nC. Voltage at the top node = 600nC / 47nF = 12.77V) is shared by each capacitor separately (C0001 to C0004)? So each capacitor will hold 3.1925V?
And what is the maximum voltage can this circuit section withstand in the case of positive pulse? Is it 4 x 100V = 400V ? Or only 2 x 100V = 200V (since the 2 sets of series capacitors are in parallel). 100V is the voltage rating of the capacitor.
