Vishay – TPCxxCA Series Bi-Directional 1500W PAR® TVS


High Power Density to Save Board Space and Lower Costs
Vishay Intertechnology introduces the industry’s first bi-directional 1500W surface mount PAR transient voltage suppressors (TVS) in the lowprofile eSMPTM SMPC (TO-277A) package.

With their low height of 1.1mm, devices in the Vishay General Semiconductor TPCxxCA series offer a 52% lower profile than TVS in the traditional SMC package, while providing a 38% smaller footprint to reduce total volume by 70%.
