ABD TVS applications

Avalanche Breakdown Diodes are used to provide load dump protection. This is the primary protection used in automotive environments to clamp voltage surges to the acceptable low voltage being used. The venerable electronic devices are thus protected from these high voltage surges present in the main vehicle power systems.
