    Littelfuse Speed2Design Makes Circuit Protection A Fashion Statement With Fuse Selection Quiz And Google Glass Giveaway.

    Littelfuse Speed2Design and Design World are giving away one Google Glass every month for the next five months. (Yes, that Google Glass... the one you secretly long for even if you'd never actually buy one for yourself.)

    Why? To remind design engineers that, as electronics get smaller, the need for circuit protection gets bigger.

    How? With a fun little quiz that will challenge their knowledge of circuit protection as it reveals the most important factors from our "Fuseology" selection guide. They take the quiz, they're automatically entered to win Glass. For example:
    1. True or False: To prevent nuisance blowing, the current rating of a fuse is typically derated 25% for operation at 25°C.
      1. True
      2. False
    1. The voltage rating of the fuse must be:
      1. Less than or equal to the available circuit voltage.
      2. Greater than or equal to the available circuit voltage.
      3. It doesn't matter how the voltage rating compares to the available circuit voltage.
    1. What does "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl" signify?
      1. The World War II code phrase signaling a successful British landing in Dieppe.
      2. The internet address of a laundry in Norway.
      3. The terminal command to trigger the OSX Easter Egg which displays "Star Wars" in ASCII text.
      4. Absolutely nothing.
    Hey, we said it would be fun. But seriously, sorting through data sheets and trying to match application needs to specifications can be a bit daunting... so knowing critical selection factors in advance can really simplify the process.

    The whole quiz/sweepstakes is rolling out on social media, the Design World website and Speed2Design.com this week. So tell your colleagues... as long as they don't work for Littelfuse, because employees aren't eligible to win. (Sorry about that.)
