What is a TVS Diode?

What is a TVS Diode?
The Transient Voltage Suppressor diode (also known as a TVS Diode) is a protection diode designed to protect electronic circuits against transients and overvoltage threats such as EFT (electrically fast transients) and ESD (electro-static discharge). TVS Diodes are silicon avalanche devices typically chosen for their fast response time (low clamping voltage), lower capacitance and low leakage current.
When selecting TVS Diodes there are some important parameters to be considered, these are; Reverse Standoff Voltage (VR), Peak Pulse Current (IPP) and Maximum Clamping Voltage (VC max).

Applications for TVS diode
Cordless Phone, Desktop, Notebook, Dish washer, DSL Modem Router, Ethernet Router, LCD Projector, LCD TV, Microprocessor Controlled Dimmer, Microwave Oven, Power Supply, Room AC, Set Top Box, SLIC Line Card, SMPS Embedded, Solar Power System (Residential), T1/T3 Line Driver, VoIP Telephone Adapter
