Matsuo Surge Absorber KVA

Product overview

The signal transmission rate of personal computer peripheral devices and digital devices as represented by USB 2.0 devices is being increased year by year, and countermeasures against ESD are critical in high-frequency bands. Matsuo Surge Absorber KVA has been developped to protect the circuits of various electronic devices sensitive to ESD.

Since Matsuo Surge Absorber KVA has a low capacitance of 0.08 pF, it is applicable to high-speed signal lines. The ecology design of Type KVA is environmentally friendly because of Lead-free and Halogen-free.



  • Usable on high-speed signal lines
  • Low capacitance (size 1005 : 0.06pF typ.)
  • Large ESD endurance and high insulation resistance
  • No polarity. Protection of circuit against ESD from both directions
  • Ultra-small size : 1005 (1. 0 × 0.5 × 0.35 mm), 1608 (1. 6 × 0.8 × 0.5 mm)
  • Suitable for automatic mounting by chip placer
  • Precise dimensions allows high-density mounting and symmetrical construction of terminal provide “Self-Alignment”
  • Resistance to soldering heat : Reflow or flow soldering 10 seconds at 260℃
  • High accuracy carrier tape by using pressed pocket ensures excellent mounting
  • Lead-free and RoHS Compliant
