PolySwitch surface-mount devices are an effective circuit protection method for computer, consumer, multimedia, portable and automotive electronics applications.
In an effort to reduce the size and cost of surface-mount devices, TE Circuit Protection introduced the miniSMD product series in 1995. Subsequently, we developed the microSMD, nanoSMD, picoSMD and femtoSMD family of products. The femtoSMD series reduced the device size to a 1608mm (0603 mils) footprint, which is one-twelfth the size of the popular miniSMD series.
Recent additions to the PolySwitch surface-mount series include 1.1A picoSMD 1210mm (0805 mils) and 0.35A femtoSMD 1608mm (0603 mils) devices.
