AVX Corp. has developed an advanced varistor designed for general ESD protection use in automotive circuits, including CMOS, bi-polar, and SiGe based systems.
According to AVX, the AEC Q200-qualified Automotive StaticGuard Series varistor delivers low capacitance and the lowest specified leakage current available in the industry. These products are suitable for use in high-speed data transmission lines. The varistor series provides bi-directional transient voltage protection in the on-state and high EMI/RFI attenuation in the off-state, while offering an ESD rating up to 15kV.
Available in miniature 0402, 0603 and 0805 case sizes, the RoHS-compliant Automotive StaticGuard Series devices are intended for general-purpose drives, general-purpose logic, transceiver chips and sensor applications.
AVX's Production part approval process (PPAP) is available upon request.
Pricing: Ranges from $0.04 to $0.09 in volume.
Availability: Lead time of 12 weeks.
