"Extending the range of the Transguard 0201 miniature MLV advances its effectiveness by further decreasing the chip count on printed circuit board and reducing the amount of real estate needed," said Jim Wright, global product manager for circuit protection products. "The MLV is a cost-effective solution to our customers' increased need for a circuit protection device that meets space constraints and provides superior protection versus larger components."
The Transguard 0201 multilayer varistors are ideal for handheld devices, as well as embedded components such as hearing aids.
This extension of the miniature Transguard Series presents a 16 VDC device with a 20 pf maximum capacitance in an 0201 case size. The TransGuard Series features multiple strike capability and is able to withstand 1,000 strikes at 8 KV of contact. These devices feature a sub 1 nS response time to ESD strike and have a maximum leakage current of 50 uA at rated voltage.
