5.0SMDJ Transient Voltage Suppressor Diode Series
Portable communications, computing and video equipment manufacturers are challenging the semiconductor industry to develop increasingly
higher power density circuit protection components.
Bourns offers Transient Voltage Suppressor Diodes for surge and ESD protection applications, in compact chip package DO-214AB (SMC)
size format. The Transient Voltage Suppressor series offers a choice of Working Peak Reverse Voltage from 5 V up to 170 V and Breakdown
Voltage up to 209 V. Typical fast response times are less than 1.0 ps from 0 V to Breakdown Voltage.
Bourns® Chip Diodes conform to JEDEC standards, are easy to handle with standard pick and place equipment and the flat configuration
minimizes roll away.
