Chip™ Fuse Data Sheet
This two-page data sheet describes the 0603FA series of fast-acting Chip™ fuses. These fuses don't burn or char when used in applications of high temperature environments because they are printed on a ceramic substrate and encapsulated with glass. They feature thick and thin film technology, a solder-free design that provides excellent temperature and pulse cycling capabilities without degrading the fuse element.
