TVS-10G+ Transient Voltage Suppressor, DC – 10 GHz

The model TVS-10G+ is an ultra-high bandwidth transient voltage suppressor functional from DC – 10 GHz. This device is designed to protect oscilloscopes from high frequency, high voltage transients, such as ESD measurement. The TVS-10G+ will clamp high voltage transients and is matched to 50 Ω system. Unlike previous designs, the TVS-10G+ does not cause rising-edge distortion on signals below its trigger voltage.

Features

  • Functional for a wide bandwidth (DC – 10 GHz)
  • Clamps high frequency, high voltage transients between ±5 V and ±11 V
  • Useful for IEC 61000-4-2 contact and air discharge up to ±10 kV and ±15 kV, respectively
  • Matched to 50 Ω system
  • Insertion loss at 10 GHz approximately 0.8 dB
  • Return loss at 1 GHz less than 30 dB
