Transient voltage suppressors are devices that are commonly used to protect circuits from spikes in current. These devices begin to absorb current once they reach the breakdown or avalanche region and clamp the voltage so that the excess spike does not affect the rest of the circuit. TVS diodes are made in both a unidirectional and bidirectional configuration.

Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) are semiconductor devices designed to provide protection against voltage and current transients. The silicon Transient Voltage Suppressor (TVS) is designed to operate in the avalanche mode and uses a large junction area to absorb large transient currents.
