AVX Releases New Automotive-Qualified Multilayer Varistors With Competitively Low Clamping-to-Working-Voltage Ratios
AVX Low Clamp AEC-Q200 Qualified TransGuard® Multilayer Varistors are designed for applications where lower clamping to working voltage ratio is required. Parts are suitable for automotive, industrial and general applications.
They offer bi-directional overvoltage protection as well as EMI/RFI attenuation in a single SMT package. This allows designers the ability to combine the circuit protection and EMI/RFI attenuation function into a single highly reliable device. Compared to standard varistors, low clamp varistors exhibit lower breakdown and clamping to working voltage ratio and provide enhanced protection for components with higher sensitivity to overvoltage.
Features / Benefits:
- AEC-Q200 Qualified
- Lower clamping to working voltage ratio for sensitive circuits
- Most efficient TVS technology per unit volume among comparable circuit protection solutions
- Low clamping to working voltage ratio requirements in automotive, industrial and general applications
