littelfuse inc (LFUS) Key Developments

Littelfuse, Inc. Introduces the SM24CANA Series 200W TVS Diode Array

Littelfuse Inc. has introduced the SM24CANA Series 200W TVS Diode Array, for protecting the automotive Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus from damage due to electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical fast transient (EFT), and other overvoltage transients. It absorbs repetitive ESD strikes above the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation and safely dissipates 3A of surge current with very low clamping voltages. This AEC-Q101 qualified device helps maximize the reliability of automotive electronics applications like drive-by-wire (CAN BUS) systems, engine control modules, powertrain electronics, anti-lock brakes, airbags and other safety circuits. It is also suitable for use in industrial CAN bus applications that are susceptible to damage due to lightning-induced transients or ESD. The SM24CANA Series lower dynamic resistance provides a 10% improvement compared to similar solutions available in the market. It provides the consumer with a higher order protection solution, helping to extend the life of mission critical equipment. The SM24CANA Series 200W TVS Diode Array offers these key benefits: Enhanced ESD and surge protection permits worry-free product implementation in automotive environments, with protection well in excess of the IEC61000-4-2 standard. Low dynamic resistance ensures superior clamping protection, providing a 10% reduction in clamping voltage versus similar market solutions. This makes the SM24CANA Series ideal for protecting automotive ICs from catastrophic failure to maximize system reliability. Low capacitance helps to preserve signal integrity and minimizes data loss. AEC-Q101 qualified for use in automotive electronics, which ensures maximum reliability. Availability: The SM24CANA Series 200W TVS Diode Array is available in quantities of 3,000 in tape and reel packaging.

Littelfuse Inc. Unveils Littelfuse iDesign Online Fuse Design and Selection Tool

Littelfuse Inc. has introduced the Littelfuse iDesign online fuse design and selection tool, a web-based tool designed to help circuit designers identify the optimal electronic fuses for their projects. The Littelfuse iDesign tool, available from a circuit protection device supplier, was developed in response to requests from Littelfuse customers. It offers a fast, intuitive way to identify the best component for an application, find parts documentation, and order part samples for prototyping, all in one convenient package. To use the Littelfuse iDesign tool, simply register to create a free online account at the iDesign Login. Unlike the simple parametric search tools or catalog-based selection charts many other circuit protection component suppliers provide, the Littelfuse iDesign tool walks users through a fuse selection process that quickly narrows the available options based on the inputs provided. The iDesign tool currently supports electronic, board mounted fuses used in a wide variety of applications, excluding system-level fuses, power fuses or automotive-style fuses. The iDesign tool's flexibility will allow Littelfuse to incorporate additional circuit protection devices in the future, so users should check back frequently for the latest additions.

For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $206,859,000 against $170,918,000 a year ago. Operating income was $33,590,000 against $28,117,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $33,812,000 against $17,972,000 a year ago. Net income was $25,389,000 or $1.12 per share diluted against $11,488,000 or $0.51 per share diluted a year ago. Net income available to common shareholders was $25,389,000 against $11,473,000 a year ago. The sales performance was due to the Hamlin and SymCom acquisitions as well as strong organic growth in automotive and electronics, partially offset by lower electrical sales reflecting weakness in the mining sector. Excluding acquisitions, sales increased 6% compared to the prior year. Cash provided by operating activities was $11,500,000 compared to $16,000,000 for the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted diluted EPS was $1.16 against $0.95 a year ago. The company continues to generate solid cash flow as cash from operating activities in the first quarter was $12,000,000. Sales for the second quarter of 2014 are expected to be in the range of $216 to $226 million which represents 18% year-over-year growth at the midpoint. Earnings for the second quarter of 2014 are expected to be in the range of $1.23 to $1.37 per diluted share, excluding any special items.
