Subject: trnaszorb failure modes
Is there any available data on open type failure modes for the transient voltage suppressors (e.g. SMBJ33A)? FMD-97 lists only shorted, failed BVR and loose particle. Also, one manufacturer rep indicated that shorted and degraded types are the most common, with no info on other types of failures. Thanks!
