Abstract: The electronic devices turn to e-waste due to their insufficient electrical protection which is provided by a ceramic core varistor. The ceramic consists of the surrounded ZnO grains of melted an additives layer. The layer is origin of the quality of the protection. To enhance the quality and consequently prevent e-waste, the fabrication of the varistor was modeled by artificial neural network. The model predicted the optimized condition that was experimentally fabricated and electrically characterized. The results confirmed the model predictability. In conclusion, the optimization which has industrial scales up potential warranties the electronic protection that controls the global e-waste. © 2015 The Korean Society of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry.
