San Jose, Calif. - Philips Semiconductors is offering many of its discrete semiconductors in leadless packages that use quad flat nonleaded technology. In the SOD882 and SOT883 packages are MOSFETs, general-purpose transistors, resistor-equipped transistors, low-VCE(sat) Biss transistors and wideband transistors, plus switching, Zener, Schottky-barrier, Varicap, Bandswitch and PIN diodes. The devices are packaged in very thin paper tape and boast a product pitch of 2 mm. The packages measure 1 x 0.6 x 0.5 mm and come with bottom-contact pads. Switching diodes in SOD882 and SOT883 packages sell for 1.4 cents in volumes of 1 million to 5 million pieces.
