Bourns, Inc. (Riverside, CA) further expanded its comprehensive line of high-power TVS (PTVS) diodes with a new high current bidirectional TVS diode offered in an SMD package. Designated the Bourns Models PTVS10-058C-SH and PTVS10-076C-SH, the new PTVS diodes provide necessary bidirectional port protection and are designed for use in high-power DC bus clamping applications. Bourns designed its new PTVS diodes in an SMD package to deliver a 20 percent reduction in peak clamping voltage compared to the equivalent through-hole device because of its lower lead inductance. Other features include:
• Peak pulse current rating of 10 kA.
• 58 V and 76 V standoff voltage, respectively.
• Typical maximum surge current at 150°C, exceeding 70% of its rated value at 25°C.
