ProTek Devices introduces TVS array
ProTek Devices has introduced a steering diode/transient voltage suppressor array (TVS array) for circuit protection in common computing interfaces such as HDMI and DVI, USB, SATA, and PCIe. The PLR0504FN5 TVS array provides an ultra-low capacitance of 0.3pF, typical for I/O to ground.
The PLR0504FN5 TVS array offers ESD protection of over 25 kilovolts for four data lines. In addition, it offers low leakage current of < 0.1 microampere. ProTek Devices’ PLR0504FN5 is also RoHS and REACH compliant. Finally, at higher operating frequencies or faster edge rates, insertion loss and signal integrity are a major concern. This new device, in conjunction with passive components integrated into a TVS/filter network, can be used for EMI/RFI protection for such a scenario.
ProTek Devices’ PLR0504FN5 has an approximate weight of just five milligrams. The component comes in a molded DFN-5 package. Other mechanical and packaging characteristics include operating and storage temperatures of -55 to 150 degrees Celsius and lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed). The components perform with a solder reflow temperature (pure tin: Sn, 100) of 260 to 270 degrees Celsius. It also has a flammability rating of UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 94V-0.
The part is available on 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481, in minimum quantities of 6,000. Pricing information and purchasing details can be obtained by contacting any authorised worldwide distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices. These sales resources are available throughout Europe, North America, Asia, South America, and more. Full contact information for all regions can be found at the company website.
ProTek Devices’ circuit protection components include transient voltage suppressors, TVS diodes, steering diode TVS arrays, alongside other modules and components. They are used worldwide in numerous applications to guard against various electric transient surges and high voltage spikes that can damage electronics investments. Such applications include aerospace subsystems, automotive subsystems, computing interfaces, consumer electronics, industrial and instrumentation equipment, medical devices, military subsystems, and networking and communications equipment.
