AVX Antenna PowerGuard (AP Series) products are an ultra low capacitance extension of reliable AntennaGuard range with new voltage, capacitance and energy ratings. Designed for use in RF circuits, sensors, high-speed lines, optic circuits and capacitance sensitive applications.

The ability to handle larger transients makes the Antenna PowerGuard series useful in applications where capacitance sensitive circuit needs to be protected against higher energy and AEC-Q 200 qualification allows for use in automotive applications.

These low capacitance values have low insertion loss, low leakage current and unsurpassed reliability compared to diode options. These advantages combined with size advantages and bi-directional protection make the Antenna PowerGuard the right choice for automotive and general applications, that are sensitive to capacitance.

Available in 0402 and 0603 case sizes, working voltages 18-30 Vdc and capacitance ratings of 1.5 – 3.3pF. Operating temperature range is -55°C to +125°C with no derating. Parts offer excellent lead free solderability thanks to Ni Barrier/100% Sn termination.

The following Part Numbers are Fully Compliant & Qualified for OPEN Alliance Ethernet Standards:

  • 1000BASE-T1 Ethernet | VCAS04AP701R5YATWA
  • 100BASE-T1 Ethernet | VCAS04AP704R7LATWA
