Vishay’s New ESD Single-Line Protection Diode Features Low Profile of 0.4 mm, Low Maximum Leakage Current of 0.1 µA, and Low Typical Capacitance of 12 pF
Ultra-Compact Plastic SOD923 Package Provides Board Space Savings
MALVERN, Pa. — February 21, 2007 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new ESD single-line protection diode in a tiny plastic SOD923 package.
With a compact 0.6-mm by 1.0-mm footprint and an extremely low profile of 0.4 mm, the VESD05A1B-02Z is designed to save board space and provide ESD protection in portable electronics for mobile computing, mobile communication, consumer, industrial, automotive, and medical applications.
The new device features a low typical capacitance of 12 pF at 2.5 V and 19 pF at 0 V (ground level), and a low maximum leakage current of 0.1 µA at 5 V. The ESD protection diode offers breakthrough voltages of 7.5 V (maximum) and 6.8 V (typical) at 1 mA, and a maximum clamping voltage of 11 V at 3 A and 9.5 V at 1 A.
The VESD05A1B-02Z provides transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000 4 2 (ESD) at 20 kV (air and contact discharge) and IEC 61000 4 5 (lightning) from 3 A (tp = 8/20 µs). The new device is also compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC.
Samples of the new ESD single-line protection diode in the compact SOD923 package are available now. Production quantities will be available in Q1 2007, with lead times of 10 weeks for large orders.
