3kW transient voltage suppressor diode array
The new family of voltage-clamping devices, qualified based on the MIL-PRF-19500 JANTX level equivalence standard, provides an integrated multi-diode solution with fast-reacting Avalanche Breakdown Diodes (ABD) that divert excess current around sensitive components to protect them from electrical overstress.
MDA3KP TVS diode arrays are available in the following screened version industry standards: M, MA, MXL and MX. The devices have been exposed to various levels of testing to ensure they meet the aircraft lightning protection requirements set forth in the standard for environmental testing of avionics, RTCA DO-160E (Lightening Induced Transient Susceptibility). RTCA (the American Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) is the industry consortium that develops consensus on critical aviation modernization issues. A vertically constructed 8-diode, 16-pin surface mount package allows for efficient layout and ease of design, as less printed circuit board space is required while enabling higher power densities. In the MDA3KP TVS diode array family, each device’s vertical construction provides the power of eight smaller devices on a printed circuit board, eliminating the need for the multiple devices even as it provides higher power. Available in unidirectional and bidirectional construction in standoff voltages of 6V to 40V, the components provide ESD and EFT protection according IEC standards and a Peak Pulse Power rating of 3000 W at 10/1000 µs. With an extended temperature range from -55 to +150°C, the devices are lot traceable, surge tested, and Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) Level 1.
