Velizy, France ON Semiconductor has introduced the µESD (micro ESD) dual series of high performance, micro-packaged electro static discharge (ESD) protection diodes. The µESD dual series is designed to protect voltage sensitive components for two lines in applications that demand minimal board space and low profiles, such as cell phones, MP3 players and portable gaming systems. These devices have been designed to maximize ESD suppression performance in the smallest 3-leaded plastic package on the market today. The µESD dual series clamps 30 kV ESD transients - per the IEC61000-4-2 standard - in less than a nanosecond to ensure voltage sensitive components are protected. The devices clamp ESD pulses to less than 7 V to protect the most sensitive systems and minimize disruption in a circuit’s functionality. A 1.2 x 1.2 mm outline makes the the ultra small SOT-723 package an ideal fit for designers that are limited in board space. The 0.5 mm profile of the package also enables designers to minimize the height of their designs without sacrificing functionality. ON Semiconductor , Velizy, France. www.onsemi.com/site/products/.
