Selecting The Best Protection Devices

Selecting the Best Protection Devices for your Application

Aug. 22, 2022
Environmental and operational conditions causing unpredictable ESD are a significant challenge to design engineers, what is the best protection device for ESD?

TVS diodes and varistors offer similar characteristics that provide the circuit protection required to prevent damage from such events as a lightning strike. While they can generally be used interchangeably, there are applications where varistors are not suitable. We will now examine TVS diodes and varistors in more detail to help design engineers select the most appropriate solution for their design.
