Future Electronics Promotes Adjustable Current Regulators from Diodes

Montreal, Canada – March 31, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate shipping availability of BCR420U/421U adjustable current regulators from Diodes, to simplify the driving of LED strips.

The BCR420U/BCR421U monolithically integrates a transistor, diodes and resistors to function as a Constant Current Regulator (CCR) for linear LED driving. The device regulates with a preset 10mA nominal that can be adjusted with external resistor up to 350mA. It is designed for driving LEDs in strings and will reduce current at increasing temperatures to self-protect.

Operating as a series linear CCR for LED string current control, it can be used in multiple applications, as long as the maximum supply voltage to the device is <40V.

The BCR420U/BCR421U has an operating junction temperature range of -55°C to +150°C and is AEC-Q101 qualified.

Future Electronics Releases etech ALERT Featuring TVS Diodes and TVS Diode Arrays from Littelfuse

Montreal, Canada – March 30, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently released a new etech ALERT featuring TVS Diodes and TVS Diode Arrays from Littelfuse.

Littelfuse’s TVS Diode Arrays are an ideal choice for suppressing ESD, as their speed and clamping levels are essential to protect today’s integrated circuits unlike the previous MLV, MOV, and polymer technologies.

The SM24CANA TVS Diode Array is designed to protect automotive Controller Area Network (CAN) lines from damage due to electrostatic discharge, electrical fast transient and other overvoltage transients.

The SM24CANA Series can absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation and can safely dissipate 3A of surge current based on a pulse waveform of 8/20 microseconds with very low clamping voltages or up to 200W.

The SM24CANB TVS Diode Array is also designed to protect automotive Controller Area Network lines from damage due to ESD, EFT and other overvoltage transients. The SM24CANB Series can absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation and safely dissipate 10A of surge current based on a pulse waveform of 8/20 microseconds with very low clamping voltages or up to 500W.

Typical applications for both of these Diode Arrays include CAN Bus Protection, Automotive Networks, On-Board Diagnostics, Sensors, Actuators, EnergyBus, Industrial Control Networks, Device Net, and Safety BUS.
