Power TVS MAX -20 / 40 / SMDMAX 6kA / SMDMAX10kA / MAX 15kA Series

MDE Power TVS MAX-20 / 40 / SMDMAX 6kA / SMDMAX10kA / MAX 15kA Series high current bidirectional Transient Voltage Suppressor (TVS) diodes with up to 400,000 watts of power are designed for RTCA /DO-160 rating for Airborne Equipment Application. These devices offer bidirectional protection from 5.0 volts to 150 volts, and are RoHS compliant and UL Recognized. They also meet MIL-STD 1275 requirements. The use of silicon technology in the Power MAX-20 / 40 / SMDMAX 6kA / SMDMAX10kA / MAX 15kA Series offer lower clamping voltage under surge compared to competing MOV technology. The devices are provided in through-hole, CELL, and SMD packages and meet industry standard requirements such as RoHS and Pb Free solder reflow profiles.
