Vishay's New EMI Filter With Integrated ESD Protection Diodes Provides Excellent Protection and Electrical Performance in Small 1.6 mm by 1.6 mm LLP75 Footprint
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — July 23, 2004 — A new ESD protection array that integrates an EMI filter in a leadless LLP75 package optimized for space-critical applications was announced today by Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH).
Measuring just 1.6 mm by 1.6 mm with a 0.7 mm height profile, the new GTF701-HS3-GS08 two-channel EMI filter offers EMI and bi-directional ESD protection in compact end products including mobile phone handsets, laptop computers, PDAs, digital cameras, modems, GPS devices, and two-way pagers.
The new diode array provides transient protection for two data lines, meeting Level 4 IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) specifications of 15 kV (air) and 8 kV (contact), as well as the IEC 61000-4-5 (lightning) specification of 5 A.
In addition to space-saving dimensions and excellent EMI and ESD protection, the new Vishay Semiconductors device provides very good electrical performance. It features a low insertion loss of -4 dB over a range from 1 MHz to 10 MHz, a low maximum reverse stand-off voltage of 5 V, low reverse leakage current, and low clamping voltage - a maximum of 15 V (5 A, 8/20 μs). Good attenuation of high-frequency signals is ensured with transmission values of 10 dB for signals between 100 MHz and 3000 MHz.
Built on thin-film-on-silicon technology in an LLP75-6A plastic package, this ESD protection array is specified for a UL 94 V-0 molding compound flammability rating, high-temperature soldering up to 260 °C, and an operating temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C.
The GTF701-HS3-GS08 ESD protection diode array and EMI filter combines cost and space savings with excellent electrical performance, representing a high industry standard and providing a cost-effective solution for high-volume mainstream applications.
Samples and production quantities of this ESD protection array with integrated EMI filter are available now with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
