AVX Launches New Automotive-Qualified Multilayer Varistors

October 10, 2019 Laura Dolan

AVX Corporation's new series of automotive-qualified multilayer varistors (MLVs) are designed to display lower breakdown- and clamping-voltage to working-voltage ratios.

The new VLAS Series Low-Clamp TransGuard® Automotive MLVs merge bi-directional overvoltage circuit protection and broadband EMI/RFI filtering functions in a single, space-saving, surface-mount (SMT) device that satisfies AEC-Q200 standards.

This expands the multifunctional advantages of varistor technology to sensitive automotive, industrial and general electronics applications that demand tighter clamping voltage performance for enhanced overvoltage protection, in addition to infotainment systems, ECUs, MCUs and displays.

They also include RoHS-compliant nickel-barrier-over-pure-tin (Ni/Sn) terminations supplemented with lead-free solder processes and are compliant with the ESD performance requirements defined in the AEC-Q200, IEC 61000-4-2, and ISO 10605 standards.
