Transient voltage supressor diodes for automotive

29 January 2020 Circuit & System Protection

Bourns announced the release of the Model 15KPA-SD-Q transient voltage suppressor diode series. This series was designed for use in DC bus clamping applications and for the protection of sensitive electronic components against over-voltage transients.

The Model 15KPA-SD-Q series offers a high peak pulse power (10/1000 µs) rating of 15 kW and high peak pulse current (8/20 µs) rating of 1 kA. It also achieves lower clamping voltage under surge, better performance stability and increased reliability compared to competing MOV technology.

The components come in a surface-mount DO-218AB package that is an optimal choice for automated pick-and-place assembly and reflow processes, simplifying PCB assembly and reducing production costs when compared to traditional through-hole packages that are functionally similar.

Furthermore, the Model 15KPA-SD-Q series is AEC-Q101 compliant and well suited for applications that require high reliability, such as power supplies and equipment used in certain harsh environments.
