Vishay announced the release of new TFU 0603 thick film flat chip fuses that offer very quick-acting fuse characteristics in a smaller chip size. The devices feature rated current values up to 4A and a breaking capacity of 35A up to a rated voltage of 32V.
Featuring the standard RR 1608M metric case size [1.55 mm by 0.85 mm by 0.45 mm], the Vishay Beyschlag TFU 0603 fuses are designed to provide secondary overcurrent protection for DC/DC converters, battery chargers, and low-voltage power supplies in mobile consumer electronics devices. A highly controlled manufacturing process, combined with Vishay’s advanced thick film technology, provides an outstanding long-term stability of fusing characteristics for mobile devices such as cell phone, PDAs, digital still cameras, camcorders, and LCD flat screen displays.
The halogen-free and lead (Pb)-free TFU 0603 devices support lead (Pb)-free soldering and are suitable for processing on automatic SMD assembly systems using wave, reflow, or vapor phase processes. The new fuses feature a coating that protects against electrical, mechanical, and climatic hazards.
