MLVB series of multilayer varistors are designed to protect electronic circuits from ESD damage. Optimal for higher frequency applications (up to 480 Mbps) or USB2.0 ports. This environmentally friendly and cost effective SMD product provides a compact solution for high inrush currents. Made using multiple, fine grain ceramic layers of a specific formulation. These layers are stacked with alternating connections between two electrode terminations. This configuration allows for higher resistances at lower voltages with faster response times than a metal oxide varistor.


  • Zinc oxide based ceramic chip
  • Low capacitance to meet the need for highspeed transient voltage protection
  • Provides ESD protection with fast responsetime (<1ns) allowing equipment to pass IEC61000-4-2 Level 4 test
  • Low profile designs for board space savings
  • Low and stable leakage current reduces power consumption
  • Low clamping voltage
  • Lead free, halogen free and RoHS compliant for global applications
