MENLO PARK, Calif., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TE Connectivity's (TE) business unit, TE Circuit Protection, has been named a winner of EDN China's 2015 Innovation Awards for its PolyZen YC device series. Winning in the "Passive Component" category, TE's hybrid PolyZen YC devices offer a highly integrated approach to helping protect consumer electronics from damage caused by electrostatic discharge and other electrical over-stress events.
The PolyZen ZEN056V230A16YC and ZEN056V260A16YC devices combine a precision Zener diode and a resettable PolySwitch PPTC (polymer positive temperature coefficient) device in a compact (4.0mm x 5.0mm x 1.3mm) package. A PolyZen device's Zener diode is thermally connected to the PPTC device to enable rapid heat transfer, which in turn allows the PPTC device to react faster, thus enhancing protection. A single hybrid PolyZen YC device can help protect products against damage caused by overvoltage, overcurrent, reverse-bias, ESD and overtemperature events more effectively than solutions that use multiple discrete devices. Typical applications include tablets, set-top boxes, hard disk drives and DC power ports.
"We are delighted that EDN China has recognized our PolyZen YC series as the best passive component of 2015," said Jin Xu, Product Manager, TE Circuit Protection. "These hybrid devices enable a single-component implementation for efficient SMT-line production and offer all the advantages of helping to reduce board space, lower bill-of-materials costs and speed time to market. It is an honor to have our product win this prestigious industry award."
