ProTek Devices’ New Circuit Protection Products Introduced So Far in 2019

Following is a quick summary of some of the circuit protection devices ProTek Devices has so far introduced in 2019.

New TVS Arrays, Diodes and More

New Diode for CAN Bus and Automotive Circuit Protection

ProTek Devices introduced a new circuit protection diode to shield CAN Bus and other automotive subsystem designs from electrostatic discharge and other electrical fast transient damage. The ESD protection level is rated at > 25 kilovolts. The PESD2402 is designed to protect two signal data lines from impairment arising from ESD and other applied transients. The diode operates at 24V with a low capacitance rating per line. It meets or exceeds IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air ±15kV, contact ±8kV and 61000-4-4 (EFT). It also features 100 watts peak pulse power per line, per IEC 61000-4-5, giving a low clamping voltage and low leakage current. In addition, the new diode is RoHS and REACH compliant. Read more.

Two New Series of Circuit Protection Components for Computing Interfaces

ProTek Devices has introduced two new series of steering diode / TVS arrays for surge, electrostatic discharge and other circuit protection in computing applications such as Ethernet ports, set-top boxes, and other computing ports and interfaces. The PSRDAxx-4A and PSRDAxx-6A series are low capacitance multi-line steering diode / transient voltage suppressor arrays. The PSRDAxx-4A is also suited to protect video card applications while the PSRDAxx-6A is also suited for industrial controls. They provide board-level circuit protection for standard TTL and CMOS bus line applications against the damaging effects of ESD, tertiary lightning and switching transients.

New AEC-Qualified TVS Array Series for Automotive Sub-Systems Circuit Protection

ProTek Devices introduced a new series of AEC-Q101 qualified transient voltage suppressor arrays (TVS arrays) for circuit protection in aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, intelligent control systems and telecommunications applications. The new PAM37SDxxAL/CAL series is available in multiple voltages. The TVS components are compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air ±15kV, contact ±8kV, 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A, 5/50ns, and with 61000-4-5 (surge): 8/20 micro seconds waveform. They also provide 400 watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 micro seconds), low inductance and first-rate clamping capability. In addition, the PAM37SDxxAL/CAL series of TVS arrays offer unidirectional and bidirectional configuration options, low leakage current of < 1 microampere (typical), a fast response time and are also RoHS and REACH compliant.
