Multifuse Ultra-Low Resistance Surface Mount PPTC Resettable FusesSeptember 18, 2017 by Bourns
PPTC models provide optimal circuit protection performance for a wide variety of space-constrained portable electronics applications
All the new Multifuse® models are based on Bourns' freeXpansion™ technology, which is a space-saving manufacturing process that enables smaller surface mount package sizes, while also making it possible for Multifuse® devices to handle larger currents and voltages with improved resistance stability. "The ultra-low resistance, small footprint, and low profile all make our latest Multifuse® product series ideal protection solutions for a new generation of space-constrained portable devices including smartphones, tablets, wireless headphones, PC motherboards, USB drives and gaming consoles," said Lee Bourns, Multifuse Product Line Manager at Bourns, Inc. "And because these devices are based on Bourns' freeXpansion™ technology, they offer superior current, voltage and resistance performance over traditional PTC solutions for designs that require more advanced overcurrent and overtemperature protection."
