February 22, 2022

CHICAGO, February 22, 2022 — Littelfuse, Inc. (NASDAQ: LFUS), an industrial technology manufacturing company empowering a sustainable, connected, and safer world, announced the new SPxxR6, a series of four-channel, low capacitance (0.2pF) TVS diode arrays. These robust diodes provide extremely low breakdown/turn-on voltages, making them ideal protectors of high-speed data lines with low voltage (-0.3 to +0.3V). They can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level specified in IEC 61000-4-2 international standard (Level 4, ±8kV contact discharge) without performance degradation. The SPxxR6 TVS Diode Arrays are ideal for use in a wide range of data communications interfaces for consumer electronics, including:USB 3.2 and 4.0,Thunderbolt 3.0 and 4.0,PCI Express 6.0.“The chipsets from USB 4.0 suppliers are known to be particularly susceptible to damage from voltages over 3.3V,” said Zhu Jia, Product Marketing Manager Diode Arrays at Littelfuse. “The SP33R6 and SP00R6 TVS diode array series provide an exceptional solution for the protection of high-speed interfaces like USB 4.0 against repeated ESD strikes.” Jia continues, “Using a multiline package footprint (SP33R6) or 0201-package (SP00R6) likely already on the circuit board; design engineers can expect ten times lower pass-through voltage when compared with existing solutions currently on the market.” The SPxxR6 offers these key benefits: Compliant with numerous IEC standards for ESD suppress
