Product News 2019-08
Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation ("Toshiba") has launched the TVS diode (ESD protection diode) “DF2B7BSL” that has increased its peak pulse current rating (Ipp) to improve surge protection performance.
Ipp is a measure of protection performance against lightning surges in accordance with IEC61000-4-5. The new product features an Ipp of 7.3 A, which is about 83 % increase over that of the existing product DF2B7ASL. This has improved the surge protection performance, helping increase the reliability of equipment. In addition, the new product is suitable for 5 V signal line applications. For 3 V signal line applications, DF2B5BSL, which has been sold in advance, is available.
The new product uses the small SL2 package (package code: SOD-962) to allow it to be used for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This can reduce the footprint.
The new product can be used for ESD protection in various applications such as audio lines, power supply lines, and general purpose input/output (GPIO).
