Littelfuse's 5 mm GDT is ideal for small form factor applications that require high surge withstanding

Littelfuse's SL1010A Series Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) is a small-footprint, three-terminal, surface-mount component that protects a broad range of communication equipment from damage due to fast-rising transients typically caused by lightning disturbances. It is rated to withstand lightning surge currents of 5 kA at 8/20 ┬Ás. At just 5 mm in diameter, the three-terminal SL1010A Series GDT is ideal for small form factor applications that require both high-energy withstanding capability and a compact footprint.

Features        
  • High energy withstanding in a small body
  • Low capacitance (<1.5 pF)
  • Low arc voltage
  • Three terminals with symmetry for tip, ring, and gnd
  • RoHS-compliant and lead-free
 Benefits
  • Ideal for small form factor applications with minimum footprint requirement
  • Minimal insertion loss, preserves signal integrity
  • Avoids thermal accumulation due to high on-state voltage
  • Reduces longitudinal to transverse mode conversions
  • Environmentally friendly
