EYP2Mpseries thermal link series from <a href=Panasonic" ALIGN="RIGHT">

Panasonic Electronic Devices Co. Ltd. announces the availability of its small and thin thermal links, designated the EYP2Mpseries, designed for protecting Li-polymer and Li-ion batteries.

As mobile devices like handsets evolve to have higher performance, the Li-ion and Li-polymer batteries that power them have also become more compact while offering higher capacity. Hence, the increasing need to protect these batteries.

The new solution from Panasonic is claimed to be the smallest in the industry, rolling in a 2.7mm-wide, 0.64mm-thick form factor. The series offers a low resistance value, which contributes to low power consumption: 6.5m次 (AU type) (measurement at 10mm) and 8.0m次 (DU type) (measurement at 10mm).

The series offer a wide selection of products depending on battery properties: two thermal cut-off temperatures and two resistance values are now available. The devices offer rated functioning temperature of 92∼C and 98∼C and a resistance value of 6.5m次 (AU type) and 8m次 (DU type) measurement at 10 mm.

Applications include overheat protection means of secondary batteries including Li-ion batteries, Li-polymer batteries

The chips are now available. Each piece costs 99 cents for volume quantities.
