Bourns introduces its 15KPA-SD-Q TVS diode series. The company produces the latest TVS diodes for DC bus clamping applications and protects sensitive electronic applications from overvoltage transients. Moreover, these new protection devices are AEC-Q101 qualified, making them an excellent protection solution for applications requiring high reliability, such as power supplies and equipment used in harsh environments.
This series has 15kW high peak pulse power (10 / 1000μs) and 1kA high peak pulse current (8 / 20μs), which has excellent performance. Compared to competing MOV technologies, these new protection components also feature lower surge clamping voltage, performance stability and higher reliability.
Available in a surface-mount DO-218AB package, this series is ideally suited for automated pick-and-place assembly and reflow processes. Compared with similar products with traditional through-hole packaging, manufacturing costs can be reduced, and PCB assembly is simplified with surface-mounted components.
