Thyristors Provide Overvoltage Protection With Minimal Signal Distortion

The NP-MC series thyristor surge protection devices (TSPDs) provide protection from transient overvoltage conditions and, with capacitance values 40% to 50% lower than existing products, do so with minimal signal distortion in high-speed xDSL, T1/E1, and other broadband equipment. Available with a full range of industry-standard voltage levels and surge current ratings from 50A to 200A, the TSPDs also boast of low leakage currents, precise turn-on voltages, and low voltage overshoot along with high surge current capabilities. Available in 2.6 mm x 4.3 mm SMB packages, prices range from $0.12 to $0.25 each/10,000. ON SEMICONDUCTOR, Phoenix, AZ. (800) 282-9855.
