Single-line ESD protection diodes save board space
Measuring only 1.95x1.5x0.95mm, Vishay Intertechnology has released two bidirectional single-line ESD protection diodes in the compact SOD-323 package. The space-saving VLIN1626-02G and VLIN2626-02G offer low capacitance and leakage current for the protection of automotive data lines against transient voltage signals.
For LIN bus applications, the diodes provide transient protection for one data line as per IEC 61000 4 2 at ±30kV (air and contact discharge). The AEC-Q101-qualified devices feature a typical low load capacitance of 15.5pF (typical ) and 18pF (maximum), low maximum leakage current of less than 0.05μA, and working voltages of -16/+26.5V or ±26V.
The protection diodes are lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant. Samples and production quantities of the new VLIN1626-02G and VLIN2626-02G are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for large orders.
