TVS Diode Demonstrates ESD Protection
Operating in ±5 V environments, OnChip Devices’ ESD0402-01FR single-channel TVS diode dissipates ESD strikes of ±8 kV contact discharge, in accordance to the IEC 6100-4-2 standard. The 0402-sized or 1 mm × 0.6 mm × 0.5 mm SMT DFN-2-packaged component exhibits less than 1 uA leakage current, typical breakdown voltage of 9 V and transient protection. The RoHS 2002/95/EC- and WEEE 2002/96/EC-compliant diode is suitable for portable electronics including cell phones, digital cameras, PDAs, mp3 players and GPS handsets. Production pricing is $0.035 each.
