A large portfolio of TVS Flat equipment manufactured by STMicroelectronics. The company's portfolio of electrical overstress TVS tablet devices is designed to handle 8 / 20μs and 10 / 1000μs voltage transients and protect circuits and equipment from surges, and combines industrial and automotive-grade equipment. To achieve a lower cost-per-watt ratio, the portfolio variant is only 1mm thick and compatible with standard surface mount devices including SMA (400W and 600W types) and SMB (600W) type packages.
This range allows design engineers to achieve the same level of protection and cost savings by using, for example, smaller 600W SMA Flat devices instead of larger standard SMB style components. Both devices can manage 600W. This indicates that these devices may be serious choices for designers for a wide range of applications including solar inverters and industrial control applications.
These components are ideal for thinner designs and are also suitable for circuits in DC lines, MOSFETs and IGBT protection circuits in a wide range of markets, including motor control, power tools, electric bikes and telecommunications, and consumer electronics or equipment such as hard drives .
They increase power density and also provide a maximum junction temperature (TJ max) of + 175C, which meets or exceeds international standards to protect sensitive devices from EOS and ESD.
