AVX Corporation offers the ability to clamp transients and filter EMI at a significantly higher voltage with the expansion of its Transguard multilayer varistor series. Designed for small handheld devices, the miniature 0201 bi-directional transient voltage suppressor provides minimal signal distortion and low insertion loss. The varistors are appropriate for handheld devices including cell phones and PDAs, as well as embedded components such as hearing aids and camera modules. This extension of the miniature Transguard Series presents a 16 VDC device with a 20 pF maximum capacitance in an 0201 case size. The series features multiple strike capability and are able to withstand 1,000 strikes at 8KV of contact. These devices feature a sub 1 nS response time to ESD strike and have a maximum leakage current of 50 uA at rated voltage. Typical pricing ranges from $0.005-$0.024.
