ProTek Devices Adds 15 Volt TVS Array for Circuit Protection in Telecommunications and Wireless Equipment

The SMP6LLC15-2P is Added to a Series of Now Four Multi-Line Low-Capacitance TVS Arrays

TEMPE, Ariz. – Dec. 18, 2017 – ProTek Devices has added the SMP6LLC15-2P to its series of SMP6LLCxx-2P multi-line low-capacitance (5pF) transient voltage suppressor arrays (TVS arrays) suited for circuit protection in customer premise equipment (CPE), telecommunication equipment, and wireless communication equipment.

The newly added part has a rated stand-off voltage of 15 volts.  Other voltages in the series are 5, 6.5, and 12 volts. The series is designed for board-level circuit protection for standard TTL and MOS bus line applications. This includes protection against damaging effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD), tertiary lightning and switching transients. The series is compliant with RTCA DO-160G. It is also IEC compatible with standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air – 15kV, contact – 8kV; 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A – 5/50ns; and 61000-4-5 (surge): 100A, 100A (2/10 micro seconds) per Bellcore GR-1089 (intra building). In addition, it’s RoHS and REACH compliant. The SMP6LLC15-2P offers 400 watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 micro seconds), 3,900 watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 micro seconds). It delivers ITKU.20 peak pulse current at 40A (5/310 micro seconds). It offers electrical engineer designers bi-directional configuration and high-surge capabilities to protect two lines.

Mechanical, Packaging and Availability Information

The SMP6LLC15-2P is provided in a molded JEDEC SO-16 package and has an approximate weight of only 0.15 grams. Other mechanical characteristics include lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed) and a solder reflow temperature of (pure-tin – Sn, 100) 260-270 degrees Celsius. Its flammability rating is UL 94V-0.

ProTek Devices’ SMP6LLC15-2P is delivered in minimum quantities of 1,000 devices on 16mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. Pricing information and purchasing details can be had by contacting any authorized distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices. The company’s distributor and representative channels are available worldwide in the USA, Europe, Asia, Latin America and more. Full contact information for all worldwide regions can be found at the company website.
