TVS Diode Proves Road Worthy

The AEC-Q101-qualified TPSMB Series automotive TVS diode combines up to 600W of peak pulse power dissipation with fast response. A high-voltage, single-component circuit protection solution, it eliminates the need to use multiple TVS Diodes in series to provide adequate protection.

 

With a standoff voltage range from 10V to 550V for both unidirectional and bidirectional forms, the series is viable for protecting I/O interfaces and Vcc buses, for starts. Typical applications include automotive electronic control units (ECUs), BCMs/LIN Bus/CAN Bus, sensors, on-board entertainment systems, Xenon head lamp ignitors, IGBT active clamping in HVAC and convertor/invertor systems, and series battery protection in battery management systems.
