ESD-clamping diodes in 0201 packages for tiny smart objects
The unidirectional ESDZL5-1F4 and bidirectional ESDZV5-1BF4 have a snap-back characteristic, with 5.8V trigger voltage and low dynamic resistance, to provide protection in a device measuring only 0.58mm x 0.28mm (typical). Also, with a low 6pF capacitance, they ensure the integrity of high-speed signals. Capable of withstanding 15kV and 18kV contact discharge respectively, both devices exceed the IEC 61000-4-2 specifications.
With leakage current below 100nA helping to maximize battery life, the Z series ESD-clamping diodes are intended for protecting equipment such as industrial sensors, IoT devices, active cables and connectors, smart-home electronics, wearable devices like smart watches and healthcare or fitness bands, and portable products including smartphones, tablets, data loggers, and point-of-sale terminals.
ST used its expertise as a pioneer developer of 0201 package technology for high-volume components to deliver component-manufacturing processes that ensure consistent quality and large production capacity for reliable supply to high-volume projects.
The unidirectional ESDZL5-1F4 and bidirectional ESDZV5-1BF4 are in production now, and samples are available. Pricing is from $0.014 for orders of 5000 units.
