Fast-reacting bodyguard for sensitive electronic systems: TVS diode series 5.0SMDJ from YAGEO – now at Rutronik

08/24/2023 Product News

Rutronik adds the new YAGEO TVS diode series 5.0SMDJ to its portfolio of qualitative surge protection components. The products are made of a high-reliability DO-214AB package, which in combination with the special power handling capacity of the diodes ensures higher protection of the circuits. In addition, they have a particularly short response time. They reliably absorb high voltage peaks - caused by lightning strikes, for example - and prevent failures or system malfunctions. The series includes uni- or bidirectional variants and specially certified automotive versions, all available at

Equipped with built-in strain relief and passivated glass junction, the powerful (5,000 W) diode series is installed in a DO-214AB low-profile plastic housing. The operating voltage of the TVS ranges from 5 V to 600 V (even higher). The series has excellent clamping capability and low inductance, as well as the typical IR of less than 2 μA. The terminals tolerate high-temperature soldering at 260 °C for 10 seconds.

YAGEO's TVS diodes meet MSL 1 according to J-STD-020, enable compliance with IEC61000-4-2 ESD protection standards of up to 30KV air and contact discharge, and are available in automotive grade (5.0SMDJ-AT) with AEC-Q101 qualification. They are halogen-free, RoHS compliant, and guarantee near-optimal performance in applications such as telecom equipment, industrial equipment, or energy storage.
