Vishay’s New Low-Profile Rectifiers Feature ESD Protection to 25 kV and Voltage Range of 100 V to 600 V in MicroSMP Package with 0.65-mm Height
MALVERN, Pa. — July 27, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today released a series of low-profile surface-mount rectifiers with ESD protection to 25 kV.
The new MSE1Px devices are offered in an eSMP™ series MicroSMP package with footprint dimensions of just 2.5 mm by 1.3 mm with a height profile of 0.65 mm. In addition to their ESD capabilities, the new devices feature a rugged maximum junction temperature of 175 °C and an MSL moisture sensitivity level of 1.
Aimed at automotive and industrial control and sensor units, as well as lighting systems, the new devices offer designer a choice of 100-V (MSE1PB), 200-V (MSE1PD), 400-V (MSE1PG), and 600-V (MSE1PJ) reverse voltage ratings. All devices feature a high average forward current capability of 1 A and a high forward surge capability of 20 A.
The new MSE1Px devices will help to save space in rail-to-rail and polarity protection applications with their miniaturized package and high IF(AV) capability, while their ESD protection feature will help improve product reliability under harsh conditions. Their environmentally friendly MicroSMP package is lead (Pb)- and halogen-free and RoHS-compliant.
