AVX Corporation has introduced a new series of automotive sub pF varistors. Based on reliable zinc-oxide varistor technology, AVX’s new AEC-Q200-qualified Automotive Sub pF AG Series varistors provide ultra-low capacitance, bi-directional ESD protection in the sub 1pF range for automotive circuits sensitive to capacitance. Featuring a capacitance value of 0.8pF in a compact and low-profile 0402 package, the new AG Series varistors exhibit excellent response times to ESD strikes, protecting sensitive circuits – including modern automotive high-speed information systems, touch controls and displays, and RF applications – from over voltage. 

AVX’s new Automotive Sub pF AG Series varistors exhibit high reliability and low insertion losses, offer multi-strike capability, and are RoHS-compliant and AEC-Q200-qualified. Featuring a working voltage range of up to 16V, a capacitance of 0.8pF with a tolerance of ±20%, and Ni barrier/100% Sn terminations, AG Series varistors are ideal for a range of applications including: antennas, RF circuits, optics, HDMI, Firewire, Thunderbolt, high-speed communication bus, GPS, camera link, sensors, and touchscreen interfaces, among others.
