TVS Diode Arrays Lower Clamping Voltage

TVS Diode Arrays Lower Clamping Voltage
Littelfuse Inc.

The SPHV unidirectional and SPHV-C bidirectional Series 200W discrete TVS diode arrays (SPA Diodes) promise to protect sensitive equipment from damage due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) and other overvoltage transients far better than earlier technologies. The SPHV and SPHV-C Series can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level of the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation and can safely dissipate up to 8A of induced surge current with very low clamping voltages. Features include ESD protection up to ±30kV (contact discharge) and surge protection up to 8A (tP=8/20µs), low dynamic resistance providing up to 60 percent lower clamping voltages than alternative technologies, and silicon packaging capable of handling more than 1,000 ESD strikes or surge transients without performance degradation. Datasheets for the SPHV and SPHV-C Series, respectively, are available at:
