Features & Applications
The AVX VC080518C400DP is a 0805 Package 18 V 42 V Clamping 550 pF SMT Multilayer Transient Vg Suppressor. TransGuard Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) with unique high-energy multilayer construction represents state-of-the-art overvoltage circuit protection. Monolithic multilayer construction provides protection from voltage transients caused by ESD, lightning, NEMP, inductive switching, etc. True surface mount product is provided in EIA industry standard packages.

TransGuard products are zinc oxide (ZnO) based ceramic semiconductor devices with non-linear voltage-current characteristics (bi-directional) similar to back-to-back zener diodes.They have the added advantage of greater current and energy handling caabilities as well as EMI/RFI attenuation. Devices are fabricated by a ceramic sintering process that yields a structure of conductive ZnO grains surrounded by electrically insulating barriers, creating varistor-like behavior. The number of grain-boundary interfaces between conducting electrodes determines “Breakdown Voltage” of the device. High voltage applications such as AC line protection require many grains between electrodes while low voltage requires few grains to establish the appropriate breakdown voltage.
