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--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2013) - 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 microseconds.

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.
