Product News 2020-05
Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (“Toshiba”) has launched bidirectional TVS diodes (ESD protection diodes), “DF2B5PCT” and “DF2B7PCT”, which have increased the peak pulse current rating of standard capacitance types suitable for power supply lines of ICs.
New products feature a peak pulse current rating of 27 A and a typical dynamic resistance of 0.1 Ω. Compared with DF2B7BSL, which is a bidirectional TVS diode with a high peak pulse current rating, the ESD absorbing performance improves about three times the peak pulse current, and about 50 % reduction in the typical dynamic resistance and a low clamp voltage. Therefore, it contributes to the improvement of reliability.
The new product lineup includes DF2B7PCT for the standard 5 V power supply line and DF2B5PCT for the 3.3 V power supply line. By selecting a TVS diode suitable for the power supply voltage, excessive applied voltage, which is generated at power supplies in transient state, to the ICs and another parts to be protected in following stages can be suppressed and damage can be prevented.
The package uses a small SOD-882 (Toshiba’s package name : CST2). Since the mounting area of the board can be reduced, it can be used for various applications besides mobile devices.
Due to lowering ESD capacity derived from miniaturization process of ICs, reliability requirements for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are increasing. In addition, the protective device itself requires a high peak pulse current because the device must be protected from transient overvoltages caused by ESD, induced lightning, and poor power supply quality. To meet these demands, we have developed a lineup of new products with high peak pulse current ratings and low dynamic resistance.
