OEMV ESD Protection on RF Input

The OEMV Series GPS Cards offer limited ESD (Electro-Static Discharge) protection on the antenna RF input: There are power clamping diodes on the RF input which also will act as ESD clamps, although they are not optimized for this. They are certainly fast enough to react to an ESD event. There is also a bias inductor that will short out, through a capacitor, some of the ESD energy which has most energy at
