Littlefuse Inc., the global leader in circuit protection, has added 80A discrete bi-directional TVS Diode Arrays to its SP11xx Series TVS Diode Arrays (SPA® Diodes). The SP1103C Series 80A Discrete Bidirectional TVS Diodes offer circuit designers lower standoff voltage options so as to protect lower voltage power buses from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage.
The diodes have been constructed by using TVS diodes fabricated in a proprietary silicon avalanche technology. These provide protection to electronic equipment which is sensitive to destructive ESDs. The robustness of the diodes helps in absorbing repetitive ESD strikes at ±30kV without affecting the performance. Besides, each diode can safely dissipate 80A of 8/20µs surge current with very low clamping voltages.
Moving on, the SP1103C Series TVS Diode Arrays have a lot of applications like automotive electronics, industrial products, consumer electronics, switches/buttons, medical equipment, point-of-sale terminals, test equipment/instrumentation, notebook/desktops/servers and computer peripherals.

Key Benefits of SP1103C Series TVS Diode Arrays:
• Extremely low (0.01 ohm) dynamic resistance ensures fast-acting ESD protection during an overvoltage event.
• Discrete bi-directional design allows them to work whether they are inserted forward or backward.
• Low breakdown voltages (3.3V) protect power rails up to 2.8V.
• An industry-standard leadless 1610DFN package is suitable for use in industrial, automotive, and commercial environments.
The SP1103C Series (surface mount 1610DFN package) is provided in tape & reel format in quantities of 3,000. Sample requests may be placed through authorized Littelfuse distributors worldwide.
