The ChipGuard® CG0402MLA and CG0603MLA Series is based on a multilayer metal oxide technology. The MLA family is designed to protect sensitive electronic circuits from the threat of electrostatic discharge ESD. The MLA series is available from 5.5 V to 26 V DC working voltages.

The wide operating voltage and temperature range makes this family ideally suited to IC power supplies, signal and control line protection.

Solder Reflow Recommendations

  • This product can be damaged by rapid heating, cooling or localized heating.
  • Heat shocks should be avoided. Preheating and gradual cooling recommended.
  • Excessive solder can damage the device. Print solder thickness of 150 to 200 um recommended.
  • Solder gun tip temperature should be kept below 280 °C and should not touch the device directly. Contact should be less than 3 seconds. A solder gun under 30 watts is recommended.
