AVX's New Sub 1pF Automotive Varistor Series Provides Ultra-Low Capacitance, Bi-Directional ESD Protection

GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of automotive sub pF varistors. Based on reliable zinc-oxide varistor technology, AVX's new AEC-Q200-qualified Automotive Sub pF AG Series varistors provide ultra-low capacitance, bi-directional ESD protection in the sub 1pF range for automotive circuits sensitive to capacitance. Featuring a capacitance value of 0.8pF in a compact and low-profile 0402 package, the new AG Series varistors exhibit excellent response times to ESD strikes, protecting sensitive circuits – including modern automotive high-speed information systems, touch controls and displays, and RF applications – from over voltage.  "As a leader in circuit protection products, AVX continuously strives to meet market demands by both improving current products and developing new series.  The Automotive Sub pF AG Series was developed in response to new information processing technologies, which demand ever-increasing digital system speeds and, consequently, require the use of ultra-low capacitance values in order to minimize signal distortion," said Jiri Machanicek, technical marketing manager at AVX. AVX's new Automotive Sub pF AG Series varistors exhibit high reliability and low insertion losses, offer multi-strike capability, and are RoHS-compliant and AEC-Q200-qualified.  Featuring a working voltage range of up to 16V, a capacitance of 0.8pF with a tolerance of ±20%, and Ni barrier/100% Sn terminations, AG Series varistors are ideal for a range of applications including: antennas, RF circuits, optics, HDMI, Firewire, Thunderbolt, high-speed communication bus, GPS, camera link, sensors, and touchscreen interfaces, among others.
