Vishay Intertechnology has launched a new bidirectional asymmetrical (BiAs) single-line ESD protection diode in the compact new DFN1006-2A package with side-wettable terminals.
Saving space over solutions in SOT packages, the Vishay Semiconductors VCUT0714BHD1 offers low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals.
With its working voltage range of -7 V to +14 V or -14 V to +7 V, and low load capacitance down to 8 pF typical, the diode released today is a standard ESD protection diode also good for interface protection in commercial applications.
For automotive applications, the VCUT0714BHD1 is also available in an AEC-Q101 qualified version.
Due to the short leads and small size of the DFN1006-2A package, the device’s line inductance is very low, allowing fast transients such as an ESD strike to be clamped with minimal over-or undershoots.
The ESD protection diode features a low maximum leakage current of < 0.1 μA at the working voltage of 7 V or 14 V; a breakdown voltage of 7.3 V or 14.5 V typical at 1 mA; and a maximum clamping voltage of 15 V at 3.6 A or 30 V at 2 A. The VCUT0714BHD1 provides transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000 4 2 at ± 25 kV (contact) and ± 30 kV (air) discharge. The device offers a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 1 under J-STD-020 and a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating.
RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the protection diode supports automated optical inspection (AOI) for automotive systems. Soldering can be checked by standard vision inspection; no X-ray is required.
