What's the story on the ESD Diodes?  Something new?

The ESD diode is a sacrificial component in the SCU that will blow , attenuating the RX signal path if exposed to RF or voltages in excess to what can damage the ADC

Receive went low and that was the issue.  While it was in they found that my fans were going out and they replace both fans, too.
