Bourns, Inc. introduced a breakthrough line of transient current suppressor (TCS) devices that provide ultra-fast and highly reliable circuit protection to very high data rate signal lines such as those used in xDSL and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). Bourns used its extensive circuit protection expertise to innovatively design solutions that combine advanced surge protection with excellent system performance and cost-effectiveness. Designated the Bourns® TCS™ DL-Series, these ultra-fast reacting devices negligibly affect the signal performance of high-speed communication ports unlike typical high capacitance protectors.
Bourns® TCS™ devices are high-speed, bidirectional, low resistance, automatically resettable, compact current limiting devices that protect circuits from overcurrent surges. 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.
The Bourns TCS DL-Series provides an integrated solution that minimizes board size, design and manufacturing costs for faster time-to-market. The new devices also help to reduce 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 2.3 Ohm dual TCSTM (TCS-DL004-250-WH) is priced at $0.42 each in 1000 piece quantities.
