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.
