  • Sensors
  • Camera modules
  • Datalines
  • Capacitance sensitive applications and more

Low capacitance Communication Bus Varistors are designed for bi-directional transient voltage protection of communication bus, data lines and other capacitance sensitive applications with the advantage of EMI/RFI attenuation in the off state. Parts are AEC-Q200 qualified for automotive applications and are also suitable for general purpose applications. KYOCERA AVX Communication Bus Varistors offer the advantages of large in-rush current capability, low capacitance to minimize signal distortion, fast turn on time to conservatively clamp the energy before its maximum. These features coupled with an extremely low FIT rate and excellent process capability make an ideal device for today’s automotive or general circuit protection.

Available in 0402, 0603 case size and 2 and 4-element arrays, working voltages 18 and 32Vdc, peak current up to 15A. Operating temperature range is -55°C to +125°C with no derating. Parts offer excellent lead free solderability thanks to Ni Barrier/100% Sn termination however PdAg termination for hybrid assembly is also available upon request.
