AVX offers the miniature 0402 varistor developed specifically for FlexRay communication bus systems used in automotive applications. The AEC-Q200 qualified Flexray automotive varistor series combines electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection with electromagnetic interference/radio frequency filtering and insertion loss characteristics to protect against transients on high-speed data lines up to 10 Mbps. Capable of withstanding multiple transient strikes while providing sub-1nS response to ESD strikes, the varistors provide protection during jump start as well. According to AVX, these automotive varistors are also a suitable drop-in replacement for diode protection and offer transient clamping.
