Chip-on-Flex Filter Connectors Tout TVS Surge Suppression Capabilities
ITT Interconnect Solutions enhanced its Chip-on-Flex (CoF) filter connectors with TVS Surge (TVSS) suppression capabilities. The filter design features one standard flex per layout and uses a flexible circuit internal to the connector, with chip capacitors surface-mounted on a small pad adjacent to the feed-thru contact. According to the company, the flex circuit design provides the necessary platform to surface mount TVS devices for lightning strike protection, enabling ITT to mount off-the-shelf devices for both filtering and surge protection using automated manufacturing processes.
