Littelfuse SiC MOSFET provides fast switching for power electronics

Circuit protection specialist Littelfuse has introduced its first series of silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs. In March, Littelfuse made a majority investment in the SiC technology development company Monolith Semiconductor. The LSIC1MO120E0080 Series, with a voltage rating of 1,200 V and ultra-low (80 mΩ) on-resistance, is the first SiC MOSFET to be released by the new… Read more »

Littelfuse’s new switching thyristor is optimized for on-board EV charge applications

Circuit protection specialist Littelfuse has introduced a series of 16 A silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) switching thyristors developed especially for EV on-board charge (EVOBC) applications. Littelfuse’s S8016xA Series thyristors are designed to offer excellent AC handling capability and surge robustness, allowing them to handle Level 1 charging up to 16 ARMS at 120 V, and Level… Read more »

Littelfuse introduces new resettable PPTC devices for automotive applications

Circuit protection specialist Littelfuse has introduced three series of PolySwitch AEC-Q200 qualified resettable Polymeric Positive Temperature Coefficient (PPTC) devices. These surface-mount devices are designed for robust overcurrent protection in harsh automotive environments. Unlike fuses, resettable PPTCs do not require replacement after a fault event – they allow a circuit to return to its normal operating… Read more »
