Transient Voltage Surge Protection for Electronics

Back in the days of vacuum tube electronics, transient voltage spikes weren’t much of an issue. The continuing process of large-scale integration (LSI) of microchips is another story altogether. Microchip manufacturing has advanced in light speed and now we have very large scale integration (VLSI) of microchips. There was a time not too many years […]
