Littelfuse’s new TPSMA6L Series of transient voltage suppression diodes can provide secondary transient voltage protection from transients induced by load dump and other transient voltage events for automotive electronic control units, sensors, entertainment systems and other applications that require high reliability. This SMA device’s low profile DO-221AC package is less than 1.1 mm high, but offers the same peak pulse power dissipation rating (600 W) as standard SMB devices. The series offers advanced surge and ESD protection in a small footprint package, allowing designers to upgrade their circuit protection without altering their existing design footprint or provide more robust protection in new circuit layouts. AEC-Q101 qualified and compliant with IEC 61000-4-2 and IEC 61000-4-4 standards, the TPSMA6L Series TVS diode is available in quantities of 3,000 in tape and reel packaging. Samples are available now for bulk orders. More automotive TVS protection products will be available after Q1, 2013.
