AVX Transfeed Automotive Series Varistors Exhibit Fastest Response Time to ESD Strikes
AVX Corporation  (Greenville, SC) has introduced the new TransFeed Automotive Series, which combines the best electrical characteristics of its TransGuard Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) and its Feedthru Capacitors in a single chip to provide state-of-the-art overvoltage circuit protection and EMI reduction over a much broader range of frequencies than comparable devices. Qualified to AEC-Q200, the series is ideal for automotive applications, including: drive by wire, dimming mirror circuits, filtering/protection on microcontroller I/O lines, filtering/protection on interface I/O lines, power line conditioning, power regulation, and LCD dashboard drivers, among others. Features include:
- Unique multilayer ceramic construction in a feedthru configuration.
- Measured response times from 200 to 250 pSec.
- Working voltage range of 5.6 to 18 VDC.
- Clamping voltage range of 18 to 50 V.
