Coordinated Circuit Protection for Critical Appliance Components
by Faraz Hasan, global industrial and appliance marketing manager, Raychem Circuit Protection products at Tyco Electronics
Resettable circuit protection devices can be used to help provide overtemperature, overcurrent, and overvoltage protection for the electric motors and fans, controllers, touchpads, displays, and interface circuitry required by sophisticated appliances.
Whether used for appliance motor control or current detection, a new integrated circuit (IC) transducer allows engineers to achieve ac and dc isolated current measurement up to 100 KHz.
For the first time, consumer electronics (CE) engineers can use both types of NAND flash memory in a single device.
A Package Deal
A new digital motor features an integrated pulse width modulation (PWM) controller to offer office and medical appliance engineers an all-in-one design.
