New nanoSMDM(TM) Series of PolySwitch(TM) Devices Now Available as Lead-Free Components
MENLO PARK, CA-January 4, 2002- Tyco Electronics Power Components/Raychem Circuit Protection Division announces that its popular nanoSMDM series of PolySwitch resettable devices is now available in a lead-free design. The new lead-free components feature gold-plated terminals, and can be installed with both leaded and lead-free solders, facilitating migration to lead-free manufacturing and assembly.
Designed for use in portable electronics, computers and peripherals, telecom equipment and automotive applications, the nanoSMDM device gives design engineers the benefit of resettable circuit protection in applications where board space is the highest priority. The small form factor (1206) device is available for operating currents of 0.5A, 0.75A, and 1.0A. The device helps protect circuits up to 6V from overcurrent surges of up to 40A. The nanoSMDM series features fast time-to-trip and low on-board resistance.
"The use of lead in electronic components is of increasing environmental and political concern. Tyco Electronics Power Components/Raychem Circuit Protection Division is pursing a lead-free program, in anticipation of global customer requirements and the potential for a positive impact on the environment," said Achilles Chiotis, Surface-mount Product Manager.
Samples of the lead-free nanoSMDM device are available in tape and reel packages for evaluation purposes.
