2017 Littelfuse, Inc. Specifications are subject to change without notice. Revised: 09/14/17 Metal-Oxide Varistors (MOVs) Surface Mount Multilayer Varistors (MLVs) > MLE Series MLE Varistor Series Description The MLE Series family of transient voltage suppression devices are based on the Littelfuse multilayer fabrication technology. These components are designed to suppress ESD events, including those specified in IEC 61000-4-2 or other standards used for Electromagnetic Compliance testing. The MLE Series is typically applied to protect integrated circuits and other components at the circuit board level operating at 18V DC , or less. The fabrication method and materials of these devices result in capacitance characteristics suitable for high frequency attenuation/low-pass filter circuit functions, thereby providing suppression and filtering in a single device. The MLE Series is manufactured from semiconducting ceramics and is supplied in a leadless, surface mount package. The MLE Series is compatible with modern reflow and wave soldering procedures. Littelfuse Inc. manufactures other Multilayer Series products. See the ML Series data sheet for higher energy/ peak current transient applications. See the AUML Series for automotive applications and the MLN Quad Array. For high-speed applications see the MHS Series. Features Halogen-Free and RoHS Compliant Rated for ESD (IEC-61000-4-2) Characterized for impedance and capacitance -55C to +125C operating temp. range Leadless 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206 sizes Operating voltages up to 18V M(DC) Multilayer ceramic construction technology Applications Protection of components and circuits sensitive to ESD Transients occurring on power supplies, control and signal lines Suppression of ESD events such as specified in IEC-61000- 4-2 or MIL-STD-883 Method-3015.7, for electromagnetic compliance (EMC) Used in mobile communications, computer/EDP products, medical products, hand held/ portable devices, industrial equipment, including diagnostic port protection and I/O interfaces Absolute Maximum Ratings Size Table Metric EIA 1005 0402 1608 0603 2012 0805 3216 1206 For ratings of individual members of a series, see device ratings and specifications table.
