CTVS Multilayer Varistors for Automotive

[---Image_alt---] Pic MLV range composing

EPCOS CTVS (Ceramic Transient Voltage Suppressors) components feature excellent characteristics for a wide range of applications. ESD and surge pulse protection is the key functionality.

Key Data

  • No temperature derating up to +150 °C
  • Very high life time robustness up to +150 °C
  • Voltage range 14 … 40 V with low leakage current (typ. <1 µA)
  • Reliable ESD protection up to 30 kV acc. to IEC 61000-4-2 (8 kV contact discharge, 15 kV air discharge)
  • Broad product range with EIA case sizes 0402 … 2220
  • 100% lead-free
  • High electrical and mechanical robustness over time
  • Electrical characteristics are stable against repeated ESD and ISO pulses
  • Qualification based on AEC-Q200 with extended stress tests

Automotive applications

[---Image_alt---] Pic MLV Automotive Applications

E series of CTVS multilayer varistors are generally used for

  • ESD protection (e.g. acc. to ISO 10605 / IEC 61000-4-2) for bus interfaces
    (e.g. CAN, LIN, MOST, Ethernet, FlexRay)
  • Protection against high-energy transients (e.g. jump start and load dump protection) acc. to ISO 7637-2 and ISO 16750-2 occurring at e.g. battery lines
