Bourns TCS DL-Series

Bourns Inc. has debuted its portfolio of transient current suppressor (TCS) devices that the company said offers ultra-fast and highly reliable circuit protection to very high data rate signal lines such as those used in xDSL and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). The company said the TCS DL-Series combines advanced surge protection with excellent system performance and cost-effectiveness.

The TCS devices are high-speed, bidirectional, low resistance, automatically resettable, compact current limiting devices that protect circuits from overcurrent surges, described the company. Protecting within nanoseconds, the devices are capable of significantly reducing latency common in most circuit protection designs, and limit the let-through energy that could potentially damage sensitive electronic circuits. A solution consisting of a TCS device and an overvoltage protector such as a clamping diode offers OEMs a superior overvoltage and overcurrent protection solution, Bourns noted.

The TCS DL-Series provides an integrated solution that is said to cut board size, design and manufacturing costs for faster time-to-market. The devices also help decrease costly field failures and help end-users decrease expensive maintenance, repair and system downtime costs.

The Bourns TCS DL-Series (dual devices) are available now. As a pricing reference, a 2.3Ωdual TCSTM (TCS-DL004-250-WH) is priced at $0.42 each in 1000 piece quantities.
