Bourns Expands Surge Protection Portfolio with TISP Protector for VDSL and Applications

RIVERSIDE, Calif., December 15, 2015 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced it has expanded its line of TISP surge protector devices with a new device designed for ADSL, VDSL and applications. Designated Model TISP4G024L1W, Bourns latest surge protector is designed to be placed between the xDSL line driver device and the transformer, protecting the line driver from overvoltage conditions. It features a low capacitance variation of 0.02 pF to ensure minimal impact to the signal integrity of the high speed interface the device is protecting.

The Model TISP4G024L1W has a surge capability of 30 A (8/20 μs) that helps developers comply with various international standards such as ITU-T K.20, K.21 or K.45, Telcordia GR-1089-CORE and YD/T for xDSL interfaces.
