Vishay TVS Diode Rotronik
Vishay's 400W surface mount transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diodes are now in stock at distributor Rutronik.

The VTVSxxASMF series is the industry’s first to feature a 2% breakdown voltage tolerance. They are ideal for line transient voltage protection in space-constrained electronics, such as laptops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones, and external hard drives.

The 23 devices in the series have working voltages from 5V to 63V. The TVS diodes come in a SMF package with low 1mm profile and have a high surge capability of 400W at 10/1000µs as well as a peak pulse current from 2.9A to 20.3A. The reverse clamping voltage ranges from 14.8V to 103.5V with an operating temperature from -55°C to +150°C. They support high-temperature soldering up to 260°C/10s at their terminals.

The series’ ESD capability of ±30kV (air and contact discharge) is in accordance with IEC61000-4-2. The TVS diodes feature low-noise technology and offer very fast response times as well as low incremental surge resistance.
