Littelfuse Inc. released a series of higher-surge TVS diode products — the 8.0SMDJ series, which is optimized to protect sensitive electronic equipment from transient voltage induced by lightning and other events. Because it combines up to 8000 W of peak pulse power dissipation in a compact DO-214AB SMC package, it offers circuit designers a high-surge, space-saving circuit protection solution that can simplify printed circuit board design and improve reliability significantly. The 8.0SMDJ Series TVS Diodes offer high power protection from voltage transients and surge lightning events as well as excellent clamping performance for increased reliability of sensitive electronics and high power density in a compact, low-profile package that allows for quick and easy PCB layout and PCBA assembly while conserving valuable board space.
