Santa Clara, Calif. Optimized for space-constrained applications, Vishay Intertechnology Inc.'s new ESD protection diodes are packaged in an ultra-small SOD523 (SC79) package that measures 0.8 x 1.6 x 0.6 mm. The new devices provide designers with a choice of five working voltages from 1 V to 12 V and maximum clamping voltages from 9 V to 25 V.
Designed to provide ESD protection for data lines in mobile phone handsets and accessories, cordless phones, laptop computers, PDAs, digital cameras, modems, MP3 players, and other compact, handheld electronics, the new Vishay Semiconductors VESDxx-02V offers one-line transient protection of 15 kV (air) and 8 kV (contact) as per IEC 61000-4-2. The five new devices are packaged in a plastic case with a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating and are specified for an operating temperature range of -40°C to 125°C.
In addition to meeting the industry standard for ESD protection required by mobile phone manufacturers, the VESDxx02V series saves space compared to multi-line arrays. This gives designers the flexibility to add protection for sensitive electronics on compact circuit boards exactly where it's needed.
Available in tape and rail packaging, pricing for U.S. delivery is $7.00 per 100 pieces in quantities of 100,000. Delivery is eight to 12 weeks for large orders.
