Littelfuse introduces a family of Gas Plasma Overvoltage Protectors. They are available in leaded configurations and small surface mount designs. These devices have the ability to handle high current surges (up to 10,000 A). Their low capacitance (typically 1 to 2 pF), high insulation resistance (greater than 1 GΩ) and low leakage ensure that the part has almost no effect on the protected system during normal operating conditions. The surface mount devices are optimized for broadband application and present no signal loss up to 1.8 GHz. They are able to deal with 2/10 uS surges of up to 2000 amps.
