JVA - Zinc Oxide Varistors Introduction

Zinc oxide varistors are electronic ceramic materials whose electrical behavior is dominated by grain-boundary interface states. They exhibit a highly nonlinear current-voltage relation with a 5% change in voltage serving to increase the current flow an order of magnitude or more.
