Vishay Intertechnology announced a Schottky diode series packaged in the ultra-small SOD-523 (SC79) package with dimensions of just 1.2 x 0.8 mm and a height profile of 0.6 mm. With very low turn-on voltage, low forward voltage values, low leakage current, and fast switching in a very small, space-saving package, the BAS40-02V, BAS70-02V, BAS581-02V, and BAT54-02V Schottky diodes provide designers with an exceptionally compact solution for general rectification applications in mobile communications and computing systems such as notebooks and PDAs; digital cameras, DVD players, and camcorders; and cellular and cordless phones. The BAS70-02V and BAS581-02V feature a diode capacitance of 2 pF with maximum forward voltage ratings of 1000 mV and 370 mV and leakage currents of 100 nA and 0.5 A, respectively. The BAS40-02V offers a capacitance of 5 pF, a forward voltage rating of 1000 mV, and a leakage current of 100 nA. The BAT54-02V features a capacitance of 12 pF, forward voltage up to 1000 mV, and a leakage current of 2 A. All four Schottky diodes feature a reverse recovery time of 5 ns. The devices are protected by a PN junction guardring against excessive voltage, such as that caused by electrostatic discharges. Each diode's plastic, molded package has a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating and is specified for high-temperature soldering of 260 C/10 sec at its terminals. Samples and production quantities of the Schottky diode series in the SOD-523 package are available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks for larger orders.
