KYOCERA AVX Miniature MAV Series Varistors have been designed to provide transient voltage protection in low power AC applications and also in higher DC voltage data lines or other capacitance sensitive applications. Parts are AEC-Q200 qualified for use in automotive applications and are also suitable for use in general purpose applications. MAV series devices are an ideal solution to transient suppression in LC resonant circuits intended for signal & power transfer. The KYOCERA AVX part provides low loss in the resonant circuit yet is able to clamp large amounts of transients in a bi-directional manner. The ability to handle large transients makes the MAV series useful in low power AC circuit protection.

Available in 0402 and 0603 case sizes and in 0405 2-element element array with working voltage 70Vdc/50Vac and capacitance from 6 to 22pF max. 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.
