Schottky Diode Touts High Efficiency, Ultra Small Package
Central Semiconductor released its CMASH-4 Schottky diode in the SOD-923 package. This new FEMTOmini device is a 40V, 200 mA Schottky diode with a forward voltage drop (VF) of 0.38V maximum at 1.0 mA and a switching speed (trr) of 5 ns maximum. According to the company, the CMASH-4 in the SOD-923 uses 55 percent less board space as compared to the SOD-523 package, and has a 48 percent lower package profile making it appropriate for most portable handheld electronic devices such as smart phones, cell phones, digital Cameras, MP3 players, GPS systems, Notebook PCs, and camcorders. Applications include DC/DC converters, LCD backlighting, camera flash, reverse voltage and current protection, and voltage clamping. This device is available Pb Free and is RoHS compliant. Prices start at US $0.09 each for 8,000 pieces on 7” tape and reel.
