ProTek Devices Intros Two Series of Automotive TVS Components for Circuit Protection

TEMPE, Ariz. – May 1, 2017 – ProTek Devices™ has made available several more of circuit protection transient voltage suppressor components certified by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC certification) for use in a variety of high-stress automotive applications. This includes systems such as braking and drive authorization to more advanced systems such as GPS navigation or park assist.

The new components include the family of PAM28DOACxxCA 400 watt TVS components and the PAM29DOAAxxCA series of 600 watt TVS components. Both series are glass-passivated chips boasting low leakage current, bidirectional configuration and exceptional clamping capability. They also have a very fast response time and are RoHS and REACH compliant.

The PAM28DOACxxCA series is provided in a molded JEDEC DO-214AC package and boast an approximate weight of only 0.06 grams. The PAM29DOAAxxCA series is offered in a molded JEDEC DO-214AA package and have an approximate weight of just 0.103 grams. Both series have lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed) and a solder reflow temperature (pure-tin – Sn, 100) of 260-270 degrees Celsius. The terminals in both series can be soldered per MIL-STD-750, method 2026. They also both carry a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.

The operating and storage temperature range for both series is -55 to 150 degrees Celsius. Both series are offered in 12mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. Minimum quantities start at 500 components. Pricing information and purchasing details can be had by contacting ProTek Devices or an authorized distributor or representative. ProTek Devices has distributor and representative channels available worldwide including, across the USA, Europe, Asia, Latin America and more.
