A California-based manufacturer of surge protection products believes its voltage suppressor diodes will offer optimum protection to those using portable technology.
Bourns has incorporated new transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diodes in its four new electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electrical fast transient surge protection devices.
These new products are designed to meet the space-constrained need of portable communications, video and computing, according to Electropages.
It says the chip diodes provide "ease of manufacturability" owing to standard pick and place equipment and a flat configuration.
As well as complying with industry standards on diodes and surge, it can offer a range of working peak reverse voltage from five volts up to 170 V, with a breakdown voltage of 200 V.
In a press release, the firm's ESD protection product manager Ian Doyle said Bourns designed its new series to meet "growing customer demand for smaller components".
This spreads across a range of equipment including medical, consumer and industrial instruments.
