rsb6_8g_prProTek Devices™ today introduced multiple transient voltage suppressor (TVS) arrays featuring a myriad of configurations ideal for embedded transient voltage protection in numerous applications such as Ethernet, USB, smartphones, other portable electronics, and more.

The announced parts include the GBLCSCxx and GBLSCxxC™, GBLLC03 and GBLLC03C™, GBLCxxI and GBLCxxCI™ and GBLCxxLC™ that make up families or series of TVS arrays, respectively.  Also made available are the GBLCSC08CLC™ and GBLC03CIHP™ TVS arrays.

All parts offer a low clamping voltage and are RoHS and REACH compliant. All parts are also compatible with IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD): Air – 15kV, Contact – 8kV and with IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A – 5/50 nanoseconds.  Every device announced can protect one power or I/O port. At higher operating frequencies or faster edge rates, insertion loss and signal integrity are a major concern and all of these new ProTek Devices TVS arrays resolve this concern.  The GBLCSC08CLC and GBLCSC series are provided with low-leakage current in a miniature SC-79 package. The GBLLC03 and GBLLC03C; GBLCxxI and GBLCxxCI and GBLCxxLC series; and the GBLC03CIHP, are provided with low-leakage current in a miniature SOD-323 package.
