The LTKAK Series TVS Diodes offer clamping characteristics superior to those of standard silicon avalanche diode technologies. Littelfuse Foldbak technology provides a clamping voltage lower than the avalanche voltage but above the rated working voltage. As a result, any voltage rise due to increased current conduction is minimized. Both series provide easy manufacturing. Provided in SMTO-218 package, the LTKAK6 and LTKAK10 Series allow circuit designers to save even more circuit board space.
The LTKAK6 and LTKAK10 series offer superior clamping characteristics over standard SAD technologies by virtue of the Littelfuse Foldbak technology, which provides a clamping voltage lower than the avalanche voltage (but above the rated working voltage). Therefore, any voltage rise due to increased current conduction is contained to a minimum, providing the best possible protection level. They can also be connected in series and/or parallel to create various capability and flexible protection solutions. LTKAK in SMTO-218 package provide the enhanced quality, easy manufacturing and compact mechanical design than current AK TVS families.Typical applications include transient overvoltage protection for cell phone base stations, industrial transient voltage surge suppressors (TVSSs), railway (railroad) trackside signaling and control cabinets, defense and avionics, and power grid and distribution Systems.
