Transient diverting suppressors (TDS), part of the SurgeSwitch portfolio, are designed to provide protection against electrical overstress events (EOS). These devices have superior clamping and stability over temperature when compared to standard transient voltage suppressor (TVS) devices. The device uses a surge rated FET as the main protection element. A precisely tuned trigger circuit activates the shunt FET when an EOS event is detected. The TDS clamping voltage is nearly constant across the rated peak pulse current range due to the extremely low ON Resistance of the FET.
