Latest Temperature Indicators offer Overtemperature Protection to USB Type-C Plugs

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is the first to stock setP temperature indicators from Littelfuse. Designed for the expanding USB Type-C market, setP surface mount temperature indicators help protect against overheating in USB Type-C plugs and chargers with captive Type-C cables.

Littelfuse setP temperature indicators, available first from Mouser Electronics, help protect USB Type-C plugs from overheating, combining overcurrent and over temperature protection into a single package. Consolidating these protection technologies replaces the need to use both current limiting switches and PPTC devices.

Available in a compact, 2.0 mm × 1.2 mm (0805) SMD package, setP temperature indicators are a discrete solution that is independent of power, featuring a sensitive sensing temp of 100 degrees C. The SMD setP series offers an easy drop-in solution to existing designs, protecting systems with power 100 W or higher without contributing to IR loss.
