Central Semiconductor’s New CAK3 & CAK6 Series 5G Transient Voltage Suppressors

Central Semiconductor Corp., a leading manufacturer of innovative discrete semiconductor solutions, introduces its CAK3-012C & CAK6-042C series of 5G bi-directional transient voltage suppressors (TVS). These TVS devices are designed to meet designers’ requirements for protection of voltage sensitive components from high energy transients that are most directly associated with lightning strikes and inductive load switching.

Manufactured with glass passivated chips to deliver exceptional reliability, these high energy TVS devices are available with voltage options ranging from 12.8V to 380V (3kA) and 42V to 240V (6kA). Ideal for high voltage 5G transceiver applications, these transient voltage suppressors also feature a tight clamping ratio (VC/VRWM) to ensure fast and precise protection of sensitive electronics, and have no inherent wear-out mechanism as is common with metal oxide varistor (MOV) type components.
