AVX has developed the Controlled Capacitance Multilayer Varistor (MLV) Series specifically for mixed signal environments. Designed to satisfy the unique challenges of the automotive market, the Controlled Capacitance MLV delivers targeted signal filtering across a 20db range. The advanced MLV also reduces emissions from high-speed ASICs and prevents conduction of induced E-fields into the IC and clamps transient voltages.
In addition, the Controlled Capacitance MLV provides bi-directional protection, excellent energy/current handling capability, and low leakage at a rated voltage of 10uA.

“AVX’s Controlled Capacitance Multilayer Varistor Series provides tighter capacitance and tolerance control versus the competition. This MLV Series also offers lower leakage current at rated voltages. We plan to further expand the TransGuard® product family to include Controlled Capacitance MLV E6 capacitance range versions, making it the most extensive offering available,” said Jim Wright, protection product manager at AVX.

The Controlled Capacitance MLV Series is ideal for multiplex bus systems, bus drivers and data over power line filtering applications.

Typical pricing for the Controlled Capacitance Multilayer Varistor Series ranges from $0.034 to $0.105 depending on volume, with a lead time of stock to 12 weeks.
