Littelfuse's newly released Enhanced Version (EV) series of thyristors feature a minimum rated blocking voltage (Vdrm/Vrrm) of up to 800V, a maximum turn-on time (tq) as low as 25µs, and a minimum rated static dv/dt of up to 75V/µs - a five times improvement over earlier thyristors of this type. The enhanced characteristics minimize the need for additional snubber components for circuit protection. The EV series comes in a full range of gate sensitivities and industry standard packaging variations, and are pin-to-pin compatible with popular models already in use.
Littelfuse is focused on delivering easy-to-use, high performance, and high quality products to our customers. In addition to continuous improvements in manufacturing processes, Littelfuse is actively developing product performance enhancements and new differentiated solutions to existing applications problems.
