Abracon Corporation is extending its product portfolio with the newly introduced ABNTC, ATCC and AMCV series of NTC thermistors, tantalum capacitors and varistors. "Making this family an attractive, low-cost circuit protection solution is its Inrush current suppression, the ability to handle large ESD related transients, sub-nanosecond response times and high energy storage capability," explains Syed Raza, Director of Engineering at Abracon.
"These devices are available in low profile 1.0×0.5×0.5mm to 5.7×5.0x2.5mm, low cost, RoHS compliant and lead free SMD packages. Specifically designed to fulfill space constraints in multi-feature consumer products, this family is optimized using thinner, lighter, miniaturized packaging, along with enhanced protection mechanisms, ensuring circuit protection for sensitive downstream components," continues Raza.
Standard applications include: dc-dc converters in LED drivers, power supply circuits, audio circuits, earphones, CPU circuits, battery chargers, digital meters, temperature controls, TCXO/OSC circuits, LCD modules, HDD and outdoor LED displays, among others.
Key features of the ABNTC series of thermistors are: Large B constant (3380K to 4700K) for higher temperature sensing capability; A -55°C to +125°C extended operating temperature range; and Standard EIA sizes of 0402, 0603 and 0805 available for high density PCB mounting.
Key features of the ATCC series of tantalum capacitors are: Large capacitance (220µF max) in small size for better output voltage regulation; A -55°C to +125°C extended operating temperature range with exceptional stability; and Standard EIA sizes of 0402, 0603 and 0805 available for high density PCB mounting.
Key features of the AMCV series of varistors are: High peak current (1200A max) and low clamping voltage (18V min); A fast response time of less than 0.5ns; A -55°C to +125°C extended operating temperature range; and Standard EIA sizes from 0201 to 2220 available for high density PCB mounting.
