Meeting increasing demand for component miniaturization in lightweight portable products such as tablets and mobile handsets, the X3-DFN0603-2 package will also help increase efficiency, with its thermally efficient design achieving 250mW power dissipation and improve electrical performance, through reduced lead inductance.
Diodes Incorporated has initially introduced a series of seven low-leakage Zeners in the miniature package, suitable for voltage referencing, regulation, over-voltage protection and voltage-limiting applications. The ‘GDZ’ Zeners offer nominal voltages from 5.1V through to 8.2V with a commendable ±5% Vz tolerance.
Also introduced in the miniature package at this time are two low capacitance (CT≤3pF) 85V rated switching diodes. The 1SS361LP3 is characterized by fast-switching performance (tRR≤4ns), while the BSA116LP3’s low-leakage current (IR≤10nA) helps extend battery life.
