Precision passive component manufacturer Bourns added new high current bidirectional TVS diode offered in an SMD package to its family of TVS Diodes.
The new PTVS10-058C-SH and PTVS10-076C-SH are designed for use in high power DC bus clamping applications. Bourns said it has designed its new PTVS diodes in an SMD package to deliver a 20 percent reduction in peak clamping voltage compared to the equivalent through-hole device because of its lower lead inductance.
"Bourns' use of silicon technology in its Power TVS products provides a lower clamping voltage under surge, greater performance stability and increased reliability compared to typical competing MOV technology," said Ben Huang, Semiconductor Product Line Manager at Bourns, Inc. "Bourns is committed to further expansion of its leading PTVS product line to continually meet the dynamic port protection needs of OEMs."
Both models protect surge of peak pulse current rating of 10 kA. The Bourns Model PTVS10-058C-SH features a 58 V standoff voltage and the Bourns model PTVS10-076C-SH has a 76 V standoff voltage. They feature surge response versus temperature of typical maximum surge current at 150 °C exceeds 70 % of its rated value at 25 °C.
As a pricing reference, the Bourns models PTVS10-058C-SH and PTVS10-076C-SH are priced at $20.61 each in 10 piece quantities and $19.24 each in 500 piece quantities, respectively. Both models are available now, meet IEC 61000-4-5 8/20 μs current surge requirements and are RoHS compliant.
