ESD Protection For PCB Level Components

ESD Protection For PCB Level Components

The ZVE Series from Stackpole is a low capacitance surface mount multilayer varistor designed for ESD protection. High capacitance can distort or even block communications signals. Since the ZVE Series is a multilayer varistor, it is inherently bi-directional and can handle higher current than similarly sized silicon based and spark gap technology products.


·     Low speed Ethernet line protection

·     RS485 protection

·     IEEE 1284 protection

·     USB 1.1, and non-high definition video and audio ports and cables

·     IC protection

The ZVE Series is available in standard 0603, 0805, 1206, and 1210 chip sizes. Operating voltage is 18 Vdc and clamping voltage is 50 volts at 2 amps. Capacitance ranges from 75 pF on the 0603 size to 400 pF on the 1210 size product. The surface mount ZVE Series is available in standard 7 in. tape and reel packaging.

Pricing varies with size and ranges from $0.085 each to $0.185 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole volume pricing.
