Transient Voltage Suppressors Keep A Low Profile

With breakdown voltages from 6.8V to 43V and clamping capabilities from 10.5V to 61.9V, the TPC series transient-voltage suppressors feature what is said to be the industry's lowest profile of 1.1 mm. Residing in eSMP TO-277A packages, the devices employ patented PAR construction, allowing them to operate across a temperature range from -65°C to +185°C. Additionally, the components offer a peak forward surge current of 200A and protect sensitive automotive equipment from voltage transients induced by inductive load switching in accordance to IEC61000-4-4 and IEC61000-4-5 and ESD in accordance to IEC61000-4-2. Samples and production quantities are available now with lead times of six weeks for large orders. Pricing is $0.25 each. VISHAY INTERTECHNOLOGY, INC., Malvern, PA. (619) 336-0860.
