ProTek Devices Intros Combo Arrays and Diodes for Consumer Electronics Circuit Protection

The Two New Thyristor Array and Steering Diode Devices Are Suited for Circuit Protection in Set Top Boxes, Modems, Routers and Other Such Devices with High-Speed Data Interfaces

TEMPE, Ariz. – June 21, 2021 – ProTek Devices has introduced two new ultra-low capacitance (< 3 pF) low leakage current (< 10nA) thyristor array and steering diode combination devices for circuit protection in consumer entertainment and networking devices like set top boxes and modems. They specifically provide surge protection in high-speed data interfaces.

ProTek Devices’ TRV24-4LC and TRV24-2LC are also ideal for gateway devices, routers, and other ADSL / VDSL / G.Fast interfaces. The TRV24-4LC is designed for circuit protection in up to four data lines while the TRV24-2LC is for two data lines.

These 24V thyristor array and steering diode combination devices are compatible with circuit protection IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air 15kV, contact 8kV and with 61000-4-5 (surge) : 35 A, 8/20 microseconds. They are also compatible with the ITU K20/K21 standard and Telcordia GR-1089-CORE (surge): 50A, 2/10 microseconds standard. In addition, they are RoHS and REACH compliant.

Mechanical Details and Availability Information

ProTek Devices’ TRV24-4LC and TRV24-2LC have an approximate weight of just 16 milligrams. The components come in a molded JEDEC SOT-23-6 package. Other mechanical and packaging characteristics include operating and storage temperatures of -55 to 150 degrees Celsius and lead matte tin plating. The components perform with a solder reflow temperature of 250 ± 5 degrees Celsius. Their flammability rating is UL 94V-0.

The parts are available on 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. Pricing information and purchasing details can be obtained by contacting any authorized worldwide distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices. These sales resources are available throughout North America, Europe, 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, and other modules and components. They are used worldwide in a variety of applications to guard against various ESD, EFT, EMI, EMF, lightning, and other electricity surges and high voltage spikes that can damage electronics investments. This includes in aerospace subsystems, automotive subsystems, computing interfaces, consumer electronics, industrial and instrumentation equipment, medical devices, military subsystems, and in networking and communications equipment.

Cutting the AI Power Cord: Technology to Enable True Edge Inference

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are exciting buzzwords in the world of electronic engineering today. But in order for artificial intelligence or machine learning to get into mainstream edge devices, we need to enable true edge inference. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated about the MAX78000 family of microcontrollers and how this new microcontroller family can help solve our AI inference challenges with low power, low latency, and a built-in neural network accelerator.
