CMPS5064Central Semiconductor Corp. announces the release of the CMPS5064 Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR). This device packaged in SOT-23 is a 400V, 0.8A SCR designed for applications with space constraints requiring a fast switching high voltage device. In addition to the high voltage capability, key attributes of the CMPS5064 are a low 0.8V gate trigger voltage with a low 200µA (max) gate trigger current, and a fast on-state switching speed of 2.8µs (typ).

The SOT-23 package utilizes 84% less board space than the SOT-223 and 64% less than the SOT-89. It also has a 39% lower profile than the SOT-223 and 36% less than the SOT-89. The CMPS5064 is suitable for applications such as over-voltage protection, pulse generation, lamp drivers, and battery charging regulation. Ideal end-products include: digital cameras, GFI protection products, and small motor controllers.

Pricing for the CMPS5064 starts at US$0.48 each for 3,000 pieces on tape and reel. Sample devices are available upon request.
