Vishay Intertechnology Introduces New Bidirectional Symmetrical Single-Line ESD Protection Diode in Ultra-Compact LLP1006-2L Package
With a small 1.0 mm by 0.6 mm footprint and an extremely low profile of 0.38 mm, the new VCUT07B1-HD1 is designed to reduce the board space required for ESD protection in portable electronics, including notebook computers and smartphones.
At the working voltage of ± 7 V, the diode offers a high isolation to ground characterized by a low leakage current of < 0.1 µA. Any transient voltage signal exceeding the reverse breakdown voltage of 7.3 V minimum at 1 mA will be clamped or shorted to ground. The device features a maximum clamping voltage of 15 V at 4 A.
The short leads and small size of the LLP1006-2L package enable a diode with very low line inductance, allowing fast transients such as ESD strikes to be clamped with minimal over- or undershoots.
The VCUT07B1-HD1 provides transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000-4-2 at ± 30 kV (air and contact discharge), and high surge current protection according to IEC 61000-4-5 at 4 A. The device is lead (Pb)-free and complies with RoHS 2011/65/EU and Vishay “Green” environmental specifications. Soldering can be checked by standard vision inspection, with no x-ray necessary.
Samples of the VCUT07B1-HD1 will be available in Q2 2012. Production quantities will be available in Q4 2012, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for larger orders.
