Germany, 19 January - Rutronik now offers the AVX TransGuard series of transient voltage suppressors. With unique high-energy multilayer construction this series represents state-of-the-art overvoltage circuit protection. Monolithic multilayer construction provides protection from voltage transients caused by ESD, lightning, NEMP, etc.

The primary physical advantages of these devices is their small size. They are available in case sizes from 0402 to 1206. They are also lead free and have standard Nickel barrier terminations with tin alloy plated finish. Electrical advantages include their EMI filter response, fast “turn on” time and repetitive strike capability. A single MLV takes the place of a back-to-back diode, plus an EMC capacitor thereby saving up to 90% of the board space that zener & capacitor solutions demand. In its “off” state, the network acts like an EMI filter. In its “on” state the MLV works like back-to-back zener diodes. Transguards capacitance ranges from 3 pF to 4.7 nF.
