2017 Littelfuse, Inc. Specifications are subject to change without notice. Revised: 09/14/17 Metal-Oxide Varistors (MOVs) Surface Mount Multilayer Varistors (MLVs) > MHS Series MHS Varistor Series Description The Multilayer High-Speed MHS Series is a very-low capacitance extension to the Littelfuse ML family of transient voltage surge suppression devices available in an 0402 and 0603-size surface mount chip. The MHS Series provides protection from ESD and EFT in high-speed data line and other high frequency applications. The low capacitance of the MHS Series permits usage in analog or digital circuits where it will not attenuate or distort the desired signal or data. Their small size is ideal for high-density printed circuit boards, being typically applied to protect intergrated circuits and other sensitive components. They are particularly well suited to suppress ESD events including those specified in IEC 61000-4-2 or other standards used for Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC) testing. The MHS Series is manufactured from semiconducting ceramics and is supplied in a leadless, surface mount package. The MHS Series is also compatible with modern reflow and wave soldering prcesses. Littelfuse Inc. manufactures other multilayer varistor series products, see the ML, MLE, MLN and AUML Series data sheets. Features Halogen-Free and RoHS compliant 3pF, 12pF, and 22pF capacitance versions suitable for high-speed data rate lines ESD rated to IEC 61000-4-2 (Level 4) EFT/B rated to IEC 61000-4-4 (Level 4) Low leakage currents -55C to +125C operating temp. range Inherently bi-directional Applications Data, Diagnostic I/O Ports Universal Serial Bus (USB) Video & Audio Ports Portable/Hand- Held Products Mobile Communications Computer/DSP Products Industrial Instruments Including Medical Absolute Maximum Ratings Size Table Metric EIA 1005 0402 1608 0603 For ratings of individual members of a series, see device ratings and specifications table.
