TVS Components Target Circuit Protection in Electric Vehicles
PAM7KSMDJ24CAP & PAM11KLD8S24CAP Press Release
Two New TVS Devices Aid in Many Automotive Applications from the EV ECU and Belt Starter Generator, to EV Charging Systems and More
ProTek Devices has introduced a couple of TVS components targeted at a delivering circuit protection across a variety of electric vehicle (EV) systems including hybrid electric vehicles, charging systems, and automotive electronic control units (ECU). One is a 7,000 Watt TVS component and the other is 11,000 Watts.
The 7,000 Watt TVS is the PAM7KSMDJ24CAP and is suited for circuit protection across the belt starter (BSG) generator circuit, the integrated starter generator (ISG) circuit, and hybrid electric vehicles at large. The 11,000 Watt TVS is the PAM11KLD8S24CAP, and it is ideal for delivering circuit protection in automotive ECUs.
The PAM7KSMDJ24CAP and PAM11KLD8S24CAP each share achieving AEC-Q101 standards qualification. Both components also allow bidirectional configuration and are RoHS and REACH compliant. They also boast a competitively very low clamping voltage.
In addition, the PAM7KSMDJ24CAP is also IEC compatible with standards 61000-4-2 (ESD), 61000-4-4 (EFT), and with 61000-4-5 (surge). It is a glass passivated chip offering 7,000 Watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 microseconds) and providing low leakage current.
Meanwhile, the PAM11KLD8S24CAP possesses a junction passivation optimized design with passivated anisotropic rectifier technology. The operating junction temperature equals 175 degrees Celsius capability, ensuring suitability for high reliability and automotive requirements. This TVS features 11,000 Watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 microseconds) and is high surge capable. In addition, the PAM11KLD8S24CAP meets standards ISO 16750-2 surge specification (varied by test condition) and MSL level one, per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of 245 degrees Celsius.
