Vishay Offers Two Quad ESD Diode Protection Arrays in New Ultra-Compact LLP1010-5L Package with 1-mm by 1-mm Footprint and Low 0.4-mm Profile for Board Space Savings

Devices Feature Low Load Capacitance of 6.5pF and 12pF, and Maximum Working Ranges of 5V and 9V

(PresseBox) (MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA, ) Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of two low-capacitance, quad ESD diode protection arrays in the tiny new LLP1010-5L package using environmentally friendly "green" molding compound.

With a compact 1-mm by 1-mm footprint and an extremely low 0.4-mm profile, the VESD05A4A-HS4 and VESD09A4A-HS4 diode protection arrays are designed to save board space and provide 4-line ESD data port protection in space-limited mobile electronics, such as portable gaming systems, MP3 players, and cell phones.

The two devices differ by their maximum working range, low load capacitance, surge current, and low typical leakage current. Both diodes provide transient protection for four data lines as per IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) at ±15kV (contact discharge) and ±20kV (air discharge). The lead (Pb)-free devices are compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC.

Samples of the new quad ESD diode arrays in the compact LLP1010-5L package will be available in Q4 2007. Production quantities will be available in Q1 2008, with lead times of 10 weeks for large orders.
