Diodes Incorporated Introduces Ultra-Miniature Diodes for Use in Lightweight Portable Products
Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today announced its first products to be housed in the ultra-miniature X3-DFN0603-2 package. The company's first 6.0V Zener and switching diodes to be provided in the 0.6mm x 0.3mm x 0.3mm format take 70% less PCB space than DFN1006-2 packaged alternatives and have an off-board height 40% lower.
Meeting increasing demand for component miniaturization in lightweight portable products such as tablets and mobile handsets, the X3-DFN0603-2 package will also help increase efficiency, with its thermally efficient design achieving 250mW power dissipation and improve electrical performance, through reduced lead inductance.
Diodes Incorporated has initially introduced a series of seven low-leakage Zeners in the miniature package, suitable for voltage referencing, regulation, over-voltage protection and voltage-limiting applications. The ‘GDZ' Zeners offer nominal voltages from 5.1V through to 8.2V with a commendable ±5% Vz tolerance.
Also introduced in the miniature package at this time are two low capacitance (CT=3pF) 85V rated switching diodes. The 1SS361LP3 is characterized by fast-switching performance (tRR=4ns), while the BSA116LP3's low-leakage current (IR=10nA) helps extend battery life.
