Resettable PPTC Devices Carry AEC-Q200 Qualification

Three series PolySwitch AEC-Q200 qualified resettable Polymeric Positive Temperature Coefficient (PPTC) devices debut, targeting robust overcurrent protection in extremely harsh automotive environments. The largest of the devices, the 2920-size ASMDC Series, has a lower profile compared to existing 2920 size ASMD series surface mount PPTCs, and no heavy metal terminals. It also offers the highest holding current and voltage rating of the three. The two smallest components of the series, the 0603-size femtoASMD Series and 0805-size picoASMD Series, suit applications in crowded automotive electronics boards. The PPTCs are available in tape and reel packaging in quantities of 4,000 or 3,000. For more information, visit the product pages for each component: ASMDC, femtoSMD, and picoASMD.
