TVS diode offers single-component protection solution for transients
Littelfuse has introduced higher voltage AEC-Q101 qualified TVS diodes optimized to protect sensitive automotive circuitry from damaging surges and electrostatic discharges. Because it combines up to 600W of peak pulse power dissipation with fast response, the TPSMB Series automotive TVS diode offers circuit designers a high-voltage, single-component circuit protection solution.
By eliminating the need to use multiple TVS Diodes in series to provide adequate protection, the series can simplify printed circuit board design and improve reliability significantly. With a standoff voltage range from 10V to 550V for both unidirectional and bidirectional forms, the series is ideal for the protection of I/O interfaces, Vcc bus and other vulnerable circuits.
