Protection thyristor series for EV applications

Littelfuse November 9, 2023

Littelfuse, Inc., an industrial technology manufacturing company empowering a sustainable, connected and safer world, announced the launch of its new Pxxx0S3N-A Automotive Grade 3kA SIDACtor Protection Thyristor Series in DO-214AB (SMC) package. This innovative product is designed to provide robust and reliable high surge current protection for equipment operating in harsh environments, enabling designers to meet regulatory requirements more easily.

The key differentiator of the Pxxx0S3N-A series lies in its high-power density design, capable of withstanding surge currents up to 3 kA (8/20 µs) and voltages up to 6 kV with very low clamping voltage. This compact SIDACtor component, housed in the DO-214AB (SMC) package, allows automotive manufacturers to achieve high power density designs and product miniaturization in automotive electronics.

Developed for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) applications, the Pxxx0S3N-A Series, when used in conjunction with a MOV combination, delivers superior transient surge protection for on-board chargers. By integrating this compact SIDACtor into their systems, automotive manufacturers can achieve more reliable, robust and cost-efficient AC power protection for charging systems.
