5.0SMLJ Series TVS Diode Used for On-Board Surge Protection in F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft Cockpits
When lives are on the line, what critical components do the leading aerospace engineers rely on to protect the complex circuitries on board the world’s most-powerful fighter jet?
In 2014, Lockheed Martin was challenged with re-designing the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft for the US Military (contract N00019-14-0002). The design was to include major technological upgrades to the stealth multi-role fighter in order to increase their effectiveness at ground attack and air-superiority missions. The overarching goal is to replace the majority of the aircraft for all branches of the US Military with that of a universal design with three variants specific to each branch.
Finding the right surge protection equipment was critical to the new state-of-the-art circuitry on-board. When a lightning strike, power surge, or operational imbalance could destroy the high current electronics system, lives are on the line and mission-critical information is hanging in the balance. That’s why the engineers chose the 5.0SMLJ Series of Surface Mount TVS Diodes to protect the redesigned aircraft electronics from dangerous power surges.

When aerospace manufacturing giant Boeing was tasked with designing a new IT network on board the US Navy’s upgraded Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers, finding the right surge protection equipment was critical. When a lightning strike, power surge, or operational imbalance could destroy the high current electronics system, lives are on the line and mission-critical information is hanging in the balance.
MDE Semiconductor, Inc. is proud to say that after rigorous testing with Boeing, as well as sea-testing on board the USS Spruance, the MAX-200 High Current Power TVS Diode has proven capable of protecting the redesigned shipboard network system from dangerous power surges.
