NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA….MDE Semiconductor, Inc., a manufacturer of Transient Voltage Suppression Devices specifically designed for the protection of electronic systems from the destructive effects of Lightning, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), and Inductive Switching, announced today their latest addition to the popular MAX Power TVS Series!

The MAX15KA-CELL Series MAX Power TVS Diodes are designed to offer clamping characteristics superior to those of standard silicon avalanche diode (SAD) technologies. This superior performance is made possible by MDE Semiconductor, Inc. MAX-Avalanche™ technology which provides clamping voltage lower than the avalanche voltage but above the rated working voltage. As a result, any voltage rise due to increased current conduction is minimized. This device can be connected in series and/or parallel to create a variety of flexible protection solutions. They provide the same enhanced quality, easy manufacturing and compact mechanical design found in the company’s MAX Power TVS Series Diode families. Additionally, because they are offered in a Surface Mount Package, they allow circuit designers to save even more circuit board space. This Surface Mount Package is ideal for automatic pick and place assembly and reflow processes, allowing for a lower manufacturing cost and greater soldering quality than axial leaded packages.

Typical applications include transient over voltage protection for Aerospace and Defense including RTCA / DO-160 Airborne Equipment, and Shipboard MIL-STD 1399 Section 300B requirements, as well as industrial Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors (TVSSs), Cell Tower Base Stations, and Railway Signal Controls.

MAX15KA-CELL Series is an innovative package design that offers the highest power rating   (8×20µs waveform) among surface mount TVS available in the current market. These TVS diodes are certified Halogen Free and RoHS Compliant.
