Product News 2018-12
Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation ("Toshiba") has launched the standard capacitance TVS diode (ESD protection diode) “DF2B5BSL” that has increased its peak pulse current rating to improve surge protection performance.
The new product features a peak pulse current rating of 8 A, about 45 % increase from the existing product to improve the protection performance against lightning surges complying with IEC61000-4-5. In addition, its electrostatic discharge voltage rating is ±23 kV, about 35 % increase from the existing product. With these features against surge protection by improved performances, this new product contributes to improving the reliability of equipment.
Internal circuits of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are becoming more highly integrated to make these devices smaller and slimmer. ICs used in these devices are increasingly miniaturized in their manufacturing processes, yet the ICs are becoming less tolerant to ESD and surges. To prevent equipment from malfunctioning or breaking down due to ESD or surges, TVS diodes are often used to protect external terminals (such as power supply connectors, audio jacks) or ICs vulnerable to ESD.
The new product uses the small SL2 package (package code: SOD-962). This makes its footprint on boards smaller, allowing it to be used for various applications.
