Rutronik introduces Vishay’s compact TVS-diodes
Distributor Rutronik offers the VTVSxxASMF series of surface-mount transient voltage suppressor (TVS) protection diodes from Vishay. According to the company, they are the industry’s first to feature a two per cent breakdown voltage tolerance, making them suitable for line transient voltage protection in space-constrained electronics, such as laptops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones, and external hard drives.
The series consists of 23 devices with working voltages from 5.0 to 63V. The diodes come in a SMF package with low (1mm) profile and have a high surge capability of 400W at 10/1000micro sec as well as a peak pulse current from 2.9 to 20.3A. Reverse clamping voltage ranges from 14.8 to 103.5V and operating temperature is from -55 to +150 degree C. The diodes support high-temperature soldering up to 260 degree C/10s at their terminals. ESD capability is ±30kV (air and contact discharge), which is in accordance with IEC61000-4-2. The TVS diodes feature low-noise technology and offer very fast response times as well as low incremental surge resistance.
