App note: Vishay load dump TVS series for 24 V powertrains

App note from Vishay on the changes to the load dump test condition and defines the maximum surge suppressing capability for Vishay load dump TVS series in these conditions. Link here (PDF) As more trucks and buses are built with complex electrical systems, load dump protection is becoming an important safety feature for vehicles with […]

App note: Circuit configuration options for TVS diodes

Different TVS configuration usage app note from ON Semiconductor. Link here (PDF) Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) protection is important because EMI and ESD can disturb the operation of the system, produce permanent damage or cause latent damage that will eventually cause a failure. Avalanche TVS diodes and diode arrays are available in a number of […]

App note: PCB design guidelines that maximize the performance of TVS diodes

Correct TVS diodes location on the PCB provides optimal protection from surge, an application note from ON Semiconductors. Link here (PDF) Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) avalanche diodes and diode arrays can be used to protect sensitive electronic components from the surge pulses that arise from ESD and EMI. The small size, fast response time, low […]
