TVS-15G Transient Voltage Suppressor, DC – 15 GHz

The model TVS-15G is an ultra-high bandwidth transient voltage suppressor functional from DC – 15 GHz. This device is designed to protect oscilloscopes from high frequency, high voltage transients, such as ESD measurement. The TVS-15G will clamp high voltage transients and is matched to 50 Ω system.

  Features

  • Functional for a wide bandwidth (DC – 15 GHz)
  • Clamps high frequency, high voltage transients to between ±2 V and ±7.5 V
  • Useful for IEC 61000-4-2 contact and air discharge up to ±12 kV and ±18 kV, respectively
  • Matched to 50 Ω system
  • Insertion loss at 15 GHz approximately 0.8 dB
  • Return loss at 1 GHz less than 30 dB
