Stackpole Product Highlight - ZVE Series Provides ESD Protection For PCB Level Components


RALEIGH, NC (July 1, 2014) - The ZVE series from Stackpole is a low capacitance surface mount multilayer varistor designed for ESD protection. High capacitance can distort or even block communications signals. Since the ZVE is a multilayer varistor, it is inherently bi-directional and can handle higher current than similarly sized silicon based and spark gap technology products.


  • Low speed Ethernet line protectionRS485 protection IEEE 1284 protection
  • USB 1.1, and non-high definition video and audio ports and cables
  • IC Protection

The ZVE is available in standard 0603, 0805, 1206, and 1210 chip sizes. Operating voltage is 18 Vdc and clamping voltage is 50 volts at 2 amps. Capacitance ranges from 75 pF on the 0603 size to 400 pF on the 1210 size product. The surface mount ZVE series is available in standard 7" tape and reel packaging. Pricing varies with size and ranges from $0.085 each to $0.185 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole volume pricing.
