This release in:

MALVERN, Pa. — Nov. 6, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of 1500-W surface-mount TransZorb® transient voltage suppressors (TVS) with an industry low profile of 1.1 mm. The SMPC series offers breakdown voltages from 6.7 V to 42.4 V and excellent clamping capability from 10.0 V to 58.1 V.

Featuring the eSMP™ TO-277A package, the TVS devices released today offer a 27 % smaller footprint than devices in the traditional SMC package. The SMPC series provides a peak forward surge current of 200 A and a temperature range of − 55 °C to + 150 °C.

The TVS devices are designed to protect sensitive equipment in telecom and general applications from voltage transients induced by inductive load switching in accordance to IEC61000-4-4 and IEC61000-4-5, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) in accordance to IEC61000-4-2.

Ideal for automated placement, the SMPC series offers low incremental surge resistance and fast response time. The devices meet MSL Level 1 standards, per J-STD-020C, are compliant to RoHS directive 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and are halogen-free in accordance with IEC 61249-2-21.

Samples and production quantities of the new SMPC series are available now, with lead times of six weeks for large orders.
