JAJSEX1A December 2017 – March 2018 TVS1800
The TVS1800 can be used in either unidirectional or bidirectional configuration. The TVS1800 shows unidirectional usage to protect an input. By placing two TVS1800's in series with reverse orientation, bidirectional operation can be utilized which will allow a working voltage of ±18 V. The TVS1800 operation in bidirectional will be similar to unidirectional operation, with a minor increase in breakdown voltage and clamping voltage. The TVS3300 bidirectional performance has been characterized in the TVS3300 Configurations Characterization. While the TVS1800 in bidirectional configuration has not specifically been characterized, it will have similar relative changes to the TVS3300 in bidirectional configuration.
