ESD Protection Diodes Possess 0.18-mm² Footprint
Matching the 0201 outline, STMicroelectronics’ ESDALCxx-1U2 family of ESD protection diodes have a footprint of 0.3 mm × 0.6 mm. The ESDALC3V9-1U2, ESDALC6V1-1U2, and ESDALC14V2-1U2 units offer a breakdown voltage of 3.9 V, 6.1 V, and 14.2 V, respectively, and capacitance values of 6 pF or 12 pF. The RoHS-compliant components can survive multiple strikes up to IEC61000-4-2 Level 4, which specifies a contact-discharge pulse of 8 kV and 30-A surge current.
