ON Semiconductor Continues to Drive the Miniaturization of Discrete Packaging

Miniaturized discrete package portfolio broadened with the addition of popular Schottky and ESD diodes in tiny SOD-723 package

Phoenix, Ariz. - April 13, 2006 - Continuing to respond to the portable product industry's need for further miniaturization of discrete component packaging, ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) today introduced three new Schottky and three new ESD diodes in a 1.4 mm x 0.6 mm x 0.5 mm SOD-723 package.

"ON Semiconductor has expanded its selection of technologies in its SOD-723 package family to directly address an industry-wide need for ultra-small discrete devices." said Mamoon Rashid, general manager for the Small Signal Division at ON Semiconductor. "Our portable product customers require smaller diodes and transistors for their power management, switching and protection applications to enable expanded feature integration in their portable products - without increasing the size of their end-products or reducing power efficiency. Introducing six of our most popular discrete devices in tiny SOD-723 packages is part of ON Semiconductor's ongoing plan to expand its miniaturized discrete product portfolio."

The Devices
The devices now offered in the SOD-723 package include Schottkys that lead the industry in lowest forward voltage (Vf) and reverse leakage current (Ir) performance, and ESD diodes that offer the highest level of ESD protection available in the 1.4 mm x 0.6 mm package size with package dimension of 1.4 mm x 0.6 mm x 0.5 mm, the SOD-723 package helps free-up much needed board space in cell phones, PDAs, digital still cameras, notebook computers, consumer electronics, media players, etc. Compared to the SOD-323 package, the SOD-723 offers a 73 percent reduction in footprint and a 50 percent reduction in profile height. In comparison to the previous generation SOD-523 package, the SOD-723 delivers a 13 percent footprint reduction and a 28 percent reduction in profile height.

The devices are priced between $0.023 and $0.035 per unit in quantities of 10,000 units.
