Semiconductor distributor Mouser Electronics has announced that it is stocking TE Circuit Protection's MHP-TA thermal cut-off (TCO) devices. The new MHP-TA series offers over temperature protection for high-capacity Lithium Polymer (LiP) and prismatic cells in media tablets, notebook PCs, electronic readers and other ultra-thin portable electronics.

The new MHP-TA series is an extension of TE Circuit Protection's innovative MHP (Metal Hybrid PPTC) technology, which connects a bimetal protector in parallel with a PPTC (polymeric positive temperature coefficient) device.

The new MHP-TA series of ultra-low-profile (L: 5.8mm x W: 3.75mm x H: 1.15mm) resettable TCO devices feature a 9Vdc rating. The series includes nine devices with two levels of current carrying capacity: low-current MHP-TA6-9 products with an approximately 6A hold current at 25C, and high-current MHP-TA15-9 products providing a hold current of approximately 15A. The low-current MHP-TA6-9 devices are available in four different current ratings (72C, 77C, 82C, 85C) and the high-current MHP-TA15 devices in five ratings (72C, 77C, 82C, 85C, 90C).
