ProTek Devices introduces the PRSB6.8U, a transient voltage suppression device for electrostatic discharge protection. This device is designed to protect wireless telecommunications devices, portable electronics such as PDAs digital cameras and personal digital media devices. The PRSB6.8U is available in a unidirectional configuration with a working voltage of 5.0 Volts and a minimum breakdown voltage of 6.0 Volts. This device is rated for 50 Watts peak pulse power using the 8/20µs surge waveform, which is sufficient protection for secondary and tertiary type lightning threats at key interface locations. The PRSB6.8U offers one line/port of unidirectional protection.
The PRSB6.8U is ideally suited to protect 5VDC lines and data I/O ports against ESD and EFT. This device meets the requirements of IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) and 61000-4-4 (EFT). At higher operating frequencies or faster edge rates, insertion loss and signal integrity are a major concern. This device in conjunction with passive components integrated into a TVS/filter network can be used for EMI/RFI protection.
Packaged in the standard SOD-923, two lead plastic case (Green Compound - Non Hologen), this device can be substituted for similar 0402 outline configurations, MLVs or Polymers. For best protection results, the PRSB6.8U should be placed near the connector or the sensitive IC component that requires protection.
Sample quantities are available upon request. Pricing is $0.08 each in quantities of 100,000 pieces. SPICE model and parameters are available for circuit simulation on request. The PSRB6.8U is lead-free, RoHS and REECH compliant.
