High current jumpers offer twice the current handling of similar devices

High current jumpers offer twice the current handling of similar devices

electronic circuits often need zero-ohm jumpers for ease of manufacture or to make trace routing simpler. Some of these applications need current handling that surpasses the capabilities of general-purpose or high current jumpers.

Stackpole’s HCJ series claims to provide more than double the current rating of similar high current jumpers. The series current ratings range from 5.8A for the smallest size up to 70.7A for the 2010 size. This high current handling enables it to be employed for many high power and high overload applications where other surface mount jumpers could fail. It also enables the use of a single jumper series for all jumper demands for many electronic end products and markets.

The series is AEC-Q200 qualified and RoHS compliant without exemption. Typical applications include switching power supplies, VR modules, battery packs and chargers, DC to DC converters in power adapters, and a wide range of power and battery management implementations.
