Littelfuse has added the LS0502SCD33 to its eFuse Protection ICs product line. In applications where backup power is crucial, the narrow temperature range of lithium-ion batteries limits their use. To address this challenge, Littelfuse’s LS0502SCD33 supercapacitor- based solution offers a wide operating temperature range and high power/energy density, ensuring a safe and compact alternative.
One of the product’s differentiators is its ability to handle high operating voltages (>3V) without complex power management systems. The component safeguards the system from potential damage by integrating input overvoltage and current protection, providing designers with a flexible, integrated and compact storage capacitor or capacitor bank backup solution.
Littelfuse’s assistant product manager, protection semiconductor business, Bernie Hsieh, said: “The LS0502SCD33 eFuse provides electronics designers with a high-efficiency integrated SuperCap charging IC solution in a single chip. This addition to our eFuse Protection ICs product portfolio expands the line’s solutions to include portable battery device protection, making Littelfuse a forerunner in the burgeoning market of management and protection for SuperCap applications.”
