ProTek Devices has introduced two new circuit protection components that shield a variety of networking, mobile and other computing applications from the destructive effects of electrical transients, the company said.
The GBLC03CIDNHP is an ultra-low capacitance (0.6pF typical) transient voltage suppressor array (TVS array) available in a bidirectional configuration. The SRV25-4LC is a port protection array that also boasts ultra-low capacitance (1.0pF typical).
ProTek Devices´ GBLC03CIDNHP works with Ethernet 10/100/1000 Base T, smartphones and other handheld wireless systems, and USB interfaces. It is rated at 500 Watts for an 8/20 micro second waveshape. It meets various IEC standards requirements. This includes 61000-4-2 (ESD): air – 15kV, contact – 8k, exceeding level 4, and handles 10kV contact and 25kV air discharge. It also includes 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A – 5/50ns and IEC 61000-4-5 (surge). The GBLC03CIDNHP also offers low leakage current and is an ideal replacement for MLV (0805) devices. It protects one power or I/O port and provides ESD protection of > 25kV as well as a low clamping voltage.
The SRV25-4LC is ideal for ESD protection in Gigabit Ethernet, smartphones and other similar portable electronics, video card interfaces, USB 2.0 interfaces, and DVI interfaces. It can clamp the effects of electrical fast transients on the power bus. The SRV25-4LC combines eight low-capacitance steering diodes for up to four individual data or transmission lines and one TVS diode for power bus protection.
ProTek Devices is a privately held semiconductor company. The company offers a product line of overvoltage protection and overcurrent protection components, which include transient voltage suppressors (TVS arrays), avalanche breakdown diodes, steering diode TVS arrays, PPTC devices, and electronics SMD chip fuses.
