New Vishay Intertechnology Series of SMD ESD Protection Diodes Provides High Surge Capability of 200 W in SMF Package

For Portable Electronics, Devices Offer Low 1 mm Profile, Low-Noise Technology, and Fast Response Times

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of surface-mount ESD protection diodes in the low-profile SMF package. For portable electronics, SMFxxA series devices provide high surge capability of 200 W at 10/1000 s.

With their low 1 mm profile, "Low-Noise" technology, and very fast response times, the Vishay Semiconductors devices released today are ideal for line transient voltage protection in space-constrained electronics, such as laptops, notebooks, tablets, external hard drives, and more.

The SMFxxA series consists of 32 devices with working voltages from 5 V to 58 V. The devices offer a peak pulse current from 2.1 A to 21.7 A, excellent clamping capability from 9.2 V to 95 V, low incremental surge resistance, and operating temperatures from -55 C to +150 C.

The protection diodes provide ESD capability of 30 kV (air and contact discharge) in accordance with IEC 61000-4-2, support high-temperature soldering to 260 C / 10 s at their terminals, and meet the MSL Level 1 standard per J-STD-020. The devices are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Automotive Grade.

Samples of the SMFxxA series are available now. Production quantities will be available in Q4 2013, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $1.00 per piece.
