Bourns New High Current Power TVS Diodes

Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today released a new series of high current Power TVS (PTVS) diodes that provide excellent overvoltage protection. Bourns' latest Model PTVS-M series is designed to meet the strict surge requirements in high power DC applications, especially in exposed and harsh environments. Featuring lower clamping voltage under surge, performance stability and increased reliability compared to competing technologies such as MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors), Bourns engineered its Model PTVS-M series using silicon-based technology to deliver superior surge performance characteristics.

Bourns New Miniature Resettable Thermal Cutoff Device Offers Highest Current Capacity

Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today introduced a breakthrough miniature resettable thermal cutoff (TCO) device series delivering the highest current capacity for comparable devices, matching the protection needs of today’s denser, higher capacity Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery cells. The new Model AA Series is capable of carrying 14 A at 60 °C, offering as much as 37 % more current capacity compared to Bourns’ previously available miniature resettable TCOs. The new protection devices also deliver extremely low impedance/resistance (2 mΩ max.), which is 60 % lower than earlier generation TCOs from Bourns. Saving costs and valuable design space, higher current Li-ion battery designs that previously needed two miniature resettable TCOs now only need a single AA Series device to meet protection requirements due to the innovative design and high precision metal press process.
