Vishay Intertechnology's New Series of Surface-Mount PAR(R) TVS Combines 5 kW High Surge Capability With + 185 Degrees C Operating Junction Temperature in DO-214AB Package
MALVERN, PA, Dec 10, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new
series of surface-mount PAR(R) transient voltage suppressors (TVS) in
the SMC DO-214AB package. For automotive and telecom applications,
5KASMC series devices feature high surge capability to 5 kW at
10/1000 microseconds and an operating junction temperature range from
- 65 degrees C to + 185 degrees C.
The TVS devices released today offer 233 % higher surge capability
than conventional 1.5 kW devices in SMC packages, increasing design
flexibility and compatibility. In addition, the TVS' high operating
junction temperatures and new low-stress, symmetric lead frame
designs provide the high reliability required for automotive
Designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment against voltage
transients induced by system inductive load switching and lightning,
the AEC-Q101-qualified devices are suitable for secondary automotive
load dump protection and telecom infrastructure DC power bus
lightning surge protection.
The 5KASMC series consists of 16 TVS devices with stand-off voltages
from 10 V to 43 V. The devices offer a peak pulse power current from
294.1 A to 72 A, maximum clamping voltage from 17 V to 69.4 V, very
fast response times, and low incremental surge resistance.
The 5KASMC series meets the Moisture Sensitivity Level MSL1 and can
be lead (Pb)-free-soldered with a maximum peak temperature of 260
degrees C (per JEDEC standard J-STD-020). The devices are compliant
with ISO-16750-2 Pulse 5b (Ri = 2.5 to 4 ohms) and JASO-A1 (Ri = 5.0
ohms). TVS devices with a stand-off voltage of 36 V and below are
also compliant with IEC61000-4-5 6 kV (Zs = 12 ohms) and 4 kV (Zs = 2
ohms) lightning surge tests.
The RoHS-compliant TVS devices are halogen-free according to the IEC
61249-2-21 definition and comply with WEEE 2011/65/EU.
Samples and production quantities of the new 5KASMC series are
available now, with lead times of eight weeks for large orders.
