Vishay Offers Industry’s First 8-Diode ESD Protection Array in Ultra-Compact LLP1713 Package for Board Space Savings
Device Features Low Profile of 0.55 mm, Low Maximum Leakage Current of <1 μA, and Low Typical Capacitance of 30 pF
MALVERN, Pa. — March 28, 2007 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of the industry’s first ESD protection array to integrate eight diodes in the very small, leadless LLP1713 package.
With an extremely low profile of 0.55 mm, the VESD05A8A-HNH is designed to provide ESD protection while saving board space in portable electronics for mobile computing, mobile communication, consumer, industrial, automotive, and medical applications.
The new device protects up to eight signal or data lines in bidirectional asymmetrical (BiAs) mode, and can also be used as a seven-line protection device in bidirectional symmetrical (BiSy) mode. The ESD diode array features a low typical capacitance of 30 pF and a low maximum leakage current of <1 μA at 5 V.
The VESD05A8A-HNH provides transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000 4 2 (ESD) at 25 kV (air and contact discharge) and IEC 61000 4 5 (lightning) from 4.5 A (tp = 8/20μs). It is also compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC.
Samples of the new 8-diode protection array in the compact LLP1713 package are available now. Production quantities will be available in Q2 2007, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for large orders.
