Littelfuse and Monolith Semiconductor produce 1200V SiC MOSfets

Littelfuse and Monolith Semiconductor of Texas have added two 1200V SiC n -channel, enhancement-mode MOSFETs to their portfolio of power semiconductor devices. These new SiC MOSFETs are the latest products of a strategic partnership that Littelfuse formed with Monolith in 2015 to develop power semiconductors for industrial and automotive markets. The LSIC1MO120E0120 and LSIC1MO120E0160 SiC MOSFETs offer ultra-low on-resistance (RDS(ON)) ...

Littelfuse continues its acquisition trail with IXYS acquisition

Littelfuse continues its acquisition trail with IXYS acquisition

Littelfuse has completed its acquisition of IXYS, bringing SiC expertise to the company. The deal, said to be valued at $750 million is the most recent, and largest made by the company, which acquired the TE Connectivity’s circuit protection business in 2015, for $350 million. “As the largest acquisition in our 90-year history, this is an exciting milestone for Littelfuse,” ...

Surface mount circuit protection device runs at high temperatures

Littelfuse says it can supply a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) thyristor circuit protection device with a junction temperature of 150°C in a surface-mount package. The SJ series thyristors have a low gate current trigger level of 6mA or 15mA maximum at approximately 1.5V. The most sensitive devices feature a gate trigger current of less than 200μA, the typical level for sense ...

Littelfuse buys Ixys for $750m

Littelfuse Q6008xH1LED

Littelfuse, the Chicago circuit protection component specialist, has bought Californian power semiconductor company Ixys for $750 million. Littelfuse says it can make more than $30 million of annualised savings in the next two years. Earlier this year Littelfuse bought a controlling stake in Monolithic Semiconductor. Ixys is the company which bought Zilog. Littelfuse sees the Ixys deal as a way of ...

Low capacitance diodes protect high speed channels

Littelfuse’s latest circuit protection devices will provide eight channels of low capacitance common mode and differential mode protection for electronic equipment exposed to electrostatic discharges (ESD). SP8008 range of TVS diode arrays are intended to provide protection against ESD events exceeding the IEC 61000-4-2 contact ESD level of ±8 kV without any performance degradation. A low loading capacitance of 0.3pF ...
