So, with these considerations in mind, a SASD-based transient suppressor can be reasonably expected to illustrate an "in circuit" response time of five nanoseconds or less.
Transient suppressors manufactured by different manufacturers utilize various suppression technologies including selenium, gas tubes, metal oxide varistors (MOVs), silicon avalanche suppressor diodes (SASDs), or combinations of the above as their suppression components.
In addition, the integrated transient suppressor activates protection circuitry when high voltages are detected, improving overall device robustness and reliability.
