Vishay Intertechnology has launched new surface-mount small signal diodes in the ultra-compact DFN1006-2A plastic package with wettable flanks. Created to save space and enhance thermal performance in automotive and industrial applications, the 40V BAS40L Schottky and 100V BAS16L switching diodes are available in AEC-Q101 qualified versions.
Measuring just 1mm x 0.6mm x 0.45mm, the diodes occupy 90% less board space than devices in traditional SOD/T packages whilst providing a 50% lower profile and better power dissipation. For protection against excessive voltage, such as electrostatic discharges, the BAS40L has a PN junction guard ring.
The devices provide a moisture sensitivity level of 1 in accordance with J-STD-020 and a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating. Halogen-free, RoHS-compliant, and Vishay Green, the diodes support AOI for automotive systems. Soldering can be checked by standard vision inspection; no X-ray is needed.
