Schottky from Diodes Incorporated Uses 66% Less Space: SDM02U30LP3
PLANO, Texas - October 4, 2012 - 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 announced its first Schottky diode to be offered in the miniature leadless DFN0603 package. Handling switching, reverse-blocking and rectification functions, the 30V, 0.1A-rated SDM02U30LP3 meets the higher density design requirements of ultr a portables, including smart phones and tablets.
Measuring just 0.62mm x 0.32mm x 0.30mm, the DFN0603 packaged Schottky uses around 66% less board space than the industry-standard DFN1006 and SOD923 alternatives. Additionally, the DF N0603 has an off-board profile advantage over the DFN1006 and SOD923, as it is 25% thinner.
To ensure that power losses are minimized and portable battery lifetime is maximized, the SDM02U30LP3 is characterized by a very low forward voltage of 0.37V and a m aximum leakage current of only 7μA. For further information, visit the Company's website at www.diodes.com.
