Miniature Multilayer Varistors feature 16 V rating.
March 15, 2011 -
Transguard® multilayer varistors clamp transients and filter EMI at up to 16 V. Designed for small handheld devices, miniature bi-directional transient voltage suppressors in 0201 case size provide minimal signal distortion and low insertion loss. Units feature 20 pF maximum capacitance, and can withstand 1,000 strikes at 8 kV of contact and feature less than 1 nsec response time to ESD strike. They also have maximum leakage current of 50 uA at rated voltage.

AVX Extends Transguard® Miniature Multilayer Varistors Series to Include 16v Rating
GREENVILLE, S.C. - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, provides designers the ability to clamp transients and filter EMI at a significantly higher voltage with the expansion of its
Transguard® multilayer varistor series. Designed for all small handheld devices, the
miniature 0201 bi-directional transient voltage suppressor provides minimal signal
distortion and low insertion loss.
"Extending the range of the Transguard® 0201 miniature MLV advances its effectiveness by further decreasing the chip count on printed circuit board and reducing the amount of real estate needed," said Jim Wright, global product manager for circuit protection products. "The MLV is a cost-effective solution to our customers' increased need for a circuit protection device that meets space constraints and provides superior protection versus larger components."
The Transguard® 0201 multilayer varistors are ideal for handheld devices including
cell phones and PDAs, as well as embedded components such as hearing aids and camera
This extension of the miniature Transguard® Series presents a 16Vdc device with a 20pf maximum capacitance in an 0201 case size. The Transguard® Series features multiple
strike capability and are able to withstand 1,000 strikes at 8KV of contact. These devices feature a sub 1nS response time to ESD strike and have a maximum leakage current of 50uA at rated voltage.
Typical pricing ranges from $0.005-$0.024 for standard commercial product depending on volume with a lead time of stock to 10 weeks.
