TEMPE, Ariz. – Nov. 12, 2012 – ProTek Devices today introduced 19 new transient voltage suppressor (TVS) components specifically for electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electrical fast transient (EFT) protection in automotive electronic systems. Such automotive electronics systems include infotainment, body, chassis and power network systems. The new TVS components meet several Automotive Electronics Council (AEC-Q101) standards.
For Infotainment network systems, ProTek Devices’ new TVS protection devices include eight TVS arrays. The PAM01SC7905C is designed for the electronic control unit. The PAM02SD2312 is ideal for USB2.0 as is an alternative TVS array, the PAM12SO824. The PAM03SD2303CI provides protection for Bluetooth®. The PAM04ST430502 and alternative PAM18DF2L0521 cover automotive LCD displays. The PAM05SC700504F and alternative PAM19DF2L0521P are ideal for car audio. The PAM06SC7905S and alternative PAM21SC790501H TVS arrays guard automotive antennas. The PAM08SD23xxC series and alternative PAM24DF1605 are designed for automotive control buttons. The PAM22LOPR2268 is a dual high-bandwidth, fast single-pole double throw (SPDT) CMOS switch. It can be used as an analog switch or as a low-delay bus switch.
For body network systems, the PAM02SD2312 TVS array is ideal for lighting sensor control units. The PAM08SD23xxC series and alternative PAM07DF23K24 provide protection for reverse sensor control units. The PAM09SD2305HP is designed of air bag sensors. The PAM15ST4305 steering diode / TVS array is designed wiper sensors.
For chassis network systems, the PAM08SD23xxC series of TVS arrays covers fuel injection interfaces. The PAM09SD2305HP is ideal for the ignition. The PAM16AL30A is designed for voltage protection of electronic braking systems. The PAM10ST23xxC series of TVS arrays shields electronic steering control systems. For power network systems, ProTek Devices provides the PAM08SD23xxC series and the PAM10ST23xxC series of TVS arrays. These are for protection of power distribution (12, 24 and 36V). And, the PAM16AL30A and PAM07DF23K24 TVS components provide voltage protection for the car battery. Read more.
