Vishay Intertechnology released a new bi-directional asymmetrical (BiAs) single-line ESD protection diode in the compact new DFN1006-2A package with side-wettable terminals.
Saving space over solutions in SOT packages, the Vishay Semiconductors VCUT0714BHD1 offers low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals.
With its working voltage range of -7 to +14 V or -14 to +7 V, and low load capacitance down to 8 pF typical, the new diode is a standard ESD that’s good for interface protection in commercial applications.
For automotive applications, the VCUT0714BHD1 is also available in an AEC-Q101 qualified version. Due to the short leads and small size of the DFN1006-2A package, the device’s line inductance is very low, allowing fast transients such as an ESD strike to be clamped with minimal over or undershoots.
The protection diode features a low maximum leakage current of < 0.1 μA at the working voltage of 7 or 14 V. It also has a breakdown voltage of 7.3 or 14.5 V typical at 1 mA and a maximum clamping voltage of 15 V at 3.6 A or 30 V at 2 A.
The VCUT0714BHD1 provides transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000‑4‑2 at ± 25 kV (contact) and ± 30 kV (air) discharge. The device offers a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 1, in accordance with J-STD-020 and a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating.
