Lowest specified leakage current on the market?

Advanced passive components and interconnect specialist, AVX, has launched a varistor which it claims delivers the lowest specified leakage current available on the market.

As part of its automotive CAN BUS range, this miniature 0402 device is designed to provide sub 1ns response to esd strikes. The AEC-Q200 qualified CAN0005 varistor is bi directional and, according to AVX, provides excellent current and energy handling capabilities as well as emi/rfi attenuation.

The device provides an esd rating of 25kV and is designed to withstand successive 1k strikes at 8kV.

"AVX offers one of the broadest AEC Q200 qualified product offerings of any automotive supplier," said Jeremiah Woods, AVX' global marketing manager for circuit protection. "The introduction of the CAN0005 varistor provides our customers excellent esd protection and the lowest specified leakage current in an AEC-Q200 Qualified 0402 varistor on the market today
