Diodes Inc – Quart into a pint pot – latest Schottky uses 66% less space (SDM02U30LP3)Oct 5 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Diodes Incorporated has announced its first Schottky diode to be offered in the miniature leadless DFN0603 package. Handling switching, reverse-blocking and rectification functions, the 30V, 0.1A-rated SDM02U30LP3 meets the higher density design requirements of ultra portables, including smart phones and tablets.
Measuring just 0.62mm x 0.32mm x 0.3mm, the DFN0603 packaged Schottky uses around 66% less board space than the industry-standard DFN1006 and SOD923 alternatives. Additionally, compared to the same packages, the DFN0603 has an off-board profile advantage, being 25% thinner.
To ensure that power losses are minimized and portable battery lifetime is maximized, the SDM02U30LPS is characterised by a very low forward voltage of 0.37V and a maximum leakage current of only 7µA, says the company.More news from Diodes Inc
