Bourns AV Automotive Grade Varistors

Bourns AV Series Automotive Grade Varistors offer excellent transient energy distribution. The varistors are transient suppressors with temperature-independent suppression characteristics, enabling protection from -55°C to +125°C. The compact varistors require less board space than silicon TVS diodes, allowing for greater circuit board layout flexibility. Bourns AV Series Automotive Grade Varistors applications include anti-lock brake systems, direct-ignition systems, airbag control systems, and wiper motors.
