SM8 Transient Voltage Suppressor Diode Series
The SM8 series is designed to protect voltage sensitive components from high
voltage, high energy transients. They have excellent clamping capability, high surge
capability, low zener impedance and fast response time. The SM8 series is supplied
in YINT Semiconductor’s exclusive, cost-effective, highly reliable and is ideally
suited for use in communication systems, automotive, numerical controls , process
controls, medical equipment, business machines, power supplies and many other
glass passivated junction.
For surface mounted applications in order to optimize board space.
Polarity:Color band denoted positive end (cathode) except Bidirectional.
Typical failure mode is short from over-specified voltage or current
High Temperature soldering:260°C/10 seconds at terminals.
Terminal:Solder plated,solderable per MIL-STD-750,Method 2026.
TVS devices are ideal for the
protection of I/O Interfaces, VCC bus
and other vulnerable circuits used in
Telecom, Computer, Industrial and
Consumer electronic applications.
