ProTek Devices distributor Inelco Hunter has announced the availability of the new PTA03-3.3ULC device which is a high power, low capacitance TVS hybrid array Gigabit Ethernet Protector. It is designed to protect high speed data line applications from the damaging effects of ESD, EFT and secondary transient threats.

The PTA03-3.3ULC is a differential-mode port, fast transient protection array that features ultra-low capacitance using a hybrid TVS and Thyristor structure. It offers even lower capacitance than its predecessor at 1.5pF (differential mode) @ TJ=75°C.

The protection device can withstand 2kW peak pulse power per 1.2/50us – 8/20us Surge Pulse.
The PTA03-3.3ULC allows for additional peak current handling capability and features a very low clamping voltage.

It is available in an SOIC-8 package configuration and the PTA03-3.3ULC will be used for Gigabit Ethernet applications in telecom equipment. The PTA03-3.3ULC protects a single data-line pair and can meet Bellcore GR1089 Surge requirements, also meeting IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-4 and IEC 61000-4-5 circuit protection requirements.

Other applications will include: T1/E1 Line Cards, ISDN U-Interfaces, ISDN S/T Interfaces, YUSL Interfaces, Ethernet 10/100/1000 Base T and Set Top Box Interfaces. Samples are available on request.

Inelco Hunter’s in-depth engineering support ensures rapid implementation, speeding up the customer’s time-to-market. Inelco’s engineers will work with the SME engineers – for example to develop custom software. This added-value support is at the core of Inelco’s philosophy, and has been for the last 30 years, setting them apart from the “stock & ship” distributors.

Customers are increasingly looking for complete solutions with a high degree of service, to provide them with truly converged, totally embedded solutions. This has inspired Inelco Hunter to develop their “Totally Embedded” range of services and embedded hardware/software solutions which include: Camera Modules, SoM Modules, Smart Display Modules, Embedded Systems, Thermal Printers, Connectors and Cable Harnesses.
