ProTek Devices' Newest TVS Array Provides Overvoltage Protection in High Speed Applications
Press release date: August 25, 2014
TEMPE, Ariz., -- ProTek Devices has introduced a new transient voltage suppressor array (TVS array) for overvoltage circuit protection in a variety of high speed applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, LAN / WAN equipment, notebooks and desktop computers, and more. The new PLR2512 is an ultra-low capacitance (3pF typical) TVS array with 100 watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 micro seconds).
The PLR2512 is also ideal for integrated magnetics / RJ-45 connectors, security cameras, and industrial controls applications. The device meets IEC standards requirements for 61000-4-2 covering electrostatic discharge (ESD) and 61000-4-4 covering electrical fast transients (EFT). ESD protection is > 25 kilovolts. The PLR2512 protects two line pairs and delivers low leakage current (10nA) and a low stand-off voltage of 2.5 volts. The minimum and maximum breakdown voltages are 2.7 and 3.6 volts, respectively. The maximum snapback voltage is 2.8 volts. The component is RoHS and REACH compliant. Operating and storage temperatures are -55 to 150 degrees Celsius.
This device is available in the space-saving molded DFN-8 package configuration. The package minimizes lead inductance to prevent overshoot voltages during high ESD current events. It has an approximate weight of just seven milligrams. It features lead-free nickel palladium gold plating and a solder reflow temperature of 260 - 270 degrees Celsius. The PLR2512 has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.
Pricing and Availability
ProTek Devices' PLR2512 TVS array series is now available in mass quantities. Pricing varies by the number of units per order. The TVS array is available in eight millimeter tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. A data sheet for the PLR2512 can be download from the ProTek Devices website.
