Thyristor Safeguards CVBS Signal Lines


Littelfuse’s PxxxxS4xLRP Series SIDACtor Protection Thyristor is designed to protect Composite Video Blanking Sync (CVBS) signal lines and ports from overvoltage transients. The combination of 6V operating voltage and 100A 5/310µs surge peak current capability and a low junction capacitance rating make the P0080S4BLRP viable for protecting a wide range of equipment.


According to the company, the components provide a compact, surface-mount solution that simplifies PCB layout. Typical applications include:
