Vishay Intertechnology Introduces New Bidirectional Symmetrical Single-Line ESD Protection Diode in Ultra-Compact LLP1006-2L Package

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today announced a new bidirectional symmetrical (BiSy) single-line ESD protection diode that offers low capacitance of 14 pF in the 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.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
