Chip Varistors Promote Reliable Motoring

TDK expands its lineup of chip varistors for automotive applications with the AVRH series offering a maximum operating voltage of 19V to 70V and a capacitance ranging from 4.7 pF to 50 pF. The miniature voltage protection device is available in IEC case 1005 (EIA 0402) with compact dimensions of 1 mm x 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm, which makes the new component 75% smaller than existing components with comparable performance. The series features a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to +150°C and can withstand contact discharges of 25 kV to IEC 61000-4-2. Additionally, and obviously, the components are qualified to AEC-Q200. If this piques your curiosity, an AVRH series datasheet is available for your technical enjoyment and general euphoria.
