Irvine, Calif. &151; The Integrated Products Group of Microsemi Corp. says its new LCD protection device protects ten lines and can eliminate up to 50 discrete components. The flip chip array protects LCD interfaces from electromagnetic interference and electrostatic discharge.
The new flip chip, designated as the LX7207, measures 2.5-mm square x 0.65-mm high, which saves significant board space as well as offers a cost savings of more than 50% for handheld LCD display applications, said the company. The 5 x 5 array, which supports 10 lines of integrated low pass filters, is equally suited for data port and data line protection in wireless handsets, notebook computers, PDAs, MP3 players, and portable terminals.
Filter response is characterized up to 6 GHz, with greater than 30 dB attenuation in the 800 to 1000 MHz range and 20 dB attenuation in the common wireless LAN frequencies of 2.4 GHz and 5.0 to 6.0 GHz. Complete technical information is available at the company's web site.
The LX7207 is priced at $0.68 in quantities of 1,000 to 5,000. Sample and production quantities are available immediately.
