Multilayer varistor designed for ESD protection

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 3:52pm


The ZVE Series from Stackpole (Raleigh, NC) is a low-capacitance, surface-mount multilayer varistor designed for ESD protection. High capacitance can distort or even block communications signals. Since the ZVE Series is a multilayer varistor, it is inherently bi-directional and can handle higher current than similarly sized silicon based and spark gap technology products. Other features include:

  • Applications including low-speed Ethernet line protection, RS485 protection, IEEE 1284 protection, USB 1.1, and non-high definition video and audio ports and cables, and IC protection.
  • Standard 0603, 0805, 1206, and 1210 chip sizes.
  • Operating voltage of 18 Vdc and clamping voltage of 50 volts at 2 amps.
  • Capacitance ranging from 75 pF on the 0603 size to 400 pF on the 1210 size product.
