KYOCERA AVX AntennaGuard Varistors

KYOCERA AVX AntennaGuard Varistors are a single-chip option for low capacitance varistors and feature small TVS components, standard EIA chip sizes, and fast response time to ESD strikes. The 0402/0603 size is available in capacitance values of ≤3pF and ≤12pF. Applications include laser drivers and ESD protection for RF amplifiers. The AntennaGuard/SPV varistors are offered in a low profile 0402 case size with ultra-low capacitance ESD protection, high reliability, low insertion loss, and bidirectional protection. Applications for KYOCERA AVX AntennaGuard Varistors include antennas, optics, HDMI, and RF circuits.
