SDP Series SOT23-5, SIDACtor® Protection Thyristor Provides Tertiary Protection for VDSL2+, ADSL2 Applications

Littelfuse, Inc., the global leader in circuit protection, has developed a new series of broadband protection Thyristors, designed for use in the tertiary or line driver side protection position for ADSL2 and VDSL2, and the 30MHz bandplan of VDSL2+ applications and general I/O protection functions. SDP Series SOT23-5 SIDACtor® Protection Thyristors, which are ideal for low capacitance over-voltage protection, do not require the use of a bias voltage and offer protection robust enough for use in the chip-side position behind the coupling transformer. Their back-to-back configuration provides symmetrical ESD protection for data lines and can be used when AC signals are present.

The SDP SIDACtor Series in the SOT23-5 package provides a minimum footprint solution that’s ideal for use in high density card designs, where space is at a premium. The flow-through design of the SOT23-5 package minimizes PCB trace layout routing, while the device’s four different stand-off voltage values offer compatibility with a variety of line drivers. The device’s low capacitance and low insertion loss make it compatible with ADSL2 and VDSL2, and the 30MHz bandplan of VDSL2+.

The SIDACtor SDP SOT23-5 Series offers an ideal surge protection solution for manufacturers and designers of VDSL, ADSL, Access, Central Office, and Customer Premise modems and gateways who need tertiary or IC side line driver chipset protection. In addition to electrical performance superior to competing Thyristors, it offers circuit designers opportunities to upgrade the circuit protection of existing projects in mass production within the existing design footprint or to provide more robust protection for future projects than competing solutions can allow.

The SDP Series SOT23-5 SIDACtor® Protection Thyristors offers circuit designers a variety of key benefits:
  •     Bidirectional transient voltage protection.
  •     Better overshooting protection than clamping can provide.
  •     Switching begins within nanoseconds to provide faster protection from damaging electrical surges.
  •     Small, low-profile, surface mount SOT23-5 package, with its flow-through design PCB, minimizes trace layout routing.
  •     Robust surge rating performance up to 50A (8/20μs) ensures excellent performance characteristics.
  •     Low capacitance and low insertion loss ensures compatibility with ADSL2 and VDSL2, and the 30MHz bandplan of VDSL2+.
  •     Through their compliance with YD/T 950, YD/T 993, YD/T 1082, GR 1089 Inter-building, GP 1089 Intra-building, IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-5, ITU K.20/21 Basic Level, ITU K.20/21 Enhanced Level, TIA-968-A, and TIA-968-B, they help circuit designers meet global regulatory standards.
Jeff Chin, global product manager of the Littelfuse SIDACtor Protection Thyristor Series, notes, “This series represents an important addition of our surge protection product offerings for the line driver side or tertiary side of transformers, and offers circuit designers new options and greater design flexibility by expanding upon the broad selection already available in our current SIDACtor SDP/SEP Series and TVS Diode Array SPA product lines.”

The SIDACtor Protection Thyristor Series is available in quantities of 3,000 in standard tape and reel packaging.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
