AEC-Q200 qualified CAN bus varistor delivers lowest specified leakage current on the market

October 28, 2011 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Passive components manufacturer AVX Corporation has expanded its automotive CAN bus varistor product offering to include a miniature 0402 device that provides sub-1nS response to ESD strikes. The AEC-Q200 qualified CAN0005 varistor delivers the lowest specified leakage current available on the market, the vendor claims.

The bi-directional CAN0005 also provides excellent current and energy handling capabilities as well as EMI/RFI attenuation. The CAN0005 provides an ESD rating of 25 kV. The low profile 0402 varistor features a fast response time to ESD and can withstand successive 1k strikes at 8 kV (IEC 61000–4-2).  

Typical pricing ranges from $0.03 - $0.09 depending on volume and package. AVX's Production part approval process (PPAP) is available upon request.
