Diodes Incorporated Launches Miniature SOT963 Packaged Devices for Ultra Portable Electronics


Dallas, Texas -Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today has introduced bipolar transistor, MOSFET, and TVS devices in the ultra small SOT963 package, achieving the same or better performance of much larger packaged parts.

Suiting low power applications, the SOT963 with its 0.7mm2 footprint is 30% smaller than SOT723 alternatives and 60% smaller than that of SOT563 packages. The footprint savings combine with the SOT963's 0.5mm off-board height to address a wide range of ultra portable electronic product requirements.

The initial SOT963 package portfolio comprises six general-purpose dual bipolar transistor combinations, three small signal dual MOSFET combinations, and a quad transient voltage suppressor array - the DUP412VP5. The devices' leaded package enables hand soldering and visual inspection, removing the need for x-ray inspection.

The dual transistors are offered with VCEO ratings of 40V and 45V and include dual NPN, dual PNP and complementary NPN and PNP pairings. The dual N, dual P and complementary MOSFETs are rated at BVDSS of 20V and have RDS(ON) ratings specified at 1.5V. Further information can be found at the Company's website at www.diodes.com.
