ProTek Devices Intros Two AEC-Qualified Circuit Protection Components

The PAM1IVN27 and PAM2IVN24 Are Suited for Critical In-Vehicle Automotive Sub-Systems

TEMPE, ARIZ. (PRWEB) DECEMBER 17, 2018 - ProTek Devices today introduced two automotive circuit protection devices that are AEC-Q101 qualified to guard against electrostatic discharge and electrical fast transients in critical automotive systems.

The PAM1IVN27 and PAM2IVN24 devices are ideal for CANBus, LINBus, FlexRay, and SENT in-vehicle sub-systems. Both new devices are also compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air ±30kV, contact ±30kV; with 61000-4-4 (EFT); and with 61000-4-5 (surge): 5A. The circuit protection components also provide bidirectional configuration, a low clamping voltage, and ultra-low leakage current of 0.8nA at 27 degrees Celsius (typical). In addition, the parts are RoHS and REACH compliant.

Mechanical, Packaging and Availability Information 
Now available, the PAM2IVN24 is provided in a molded JEDEC SOT-23 package while the PAM1IVN27 comes in a molded JEDEC SOD-323 package. The PAM2IVN24 has an approximate weight of just eight milligrams and the PAM1IVN27 has an approximate weight of only five milligrams. Other key mechanical characteristics for both components include lead-free pure-tin plating (annealed) and a solder reflow temperature (pure-tin Sn) of 260-270 degrees Celsius. The devices’ flammability ratings are UL 94V-0. They are delivered on 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481, in minimum quantities of 3,000.
