Vishay Intertechnology has launched a surface mount device that combines a standard rectifier and transient voltage suppressor (TVS) for a two-in-one package design.

The R3T2FPHM3 uses an oxide planar chip junction design and a common cathode circuit configuration to combine a 3 A, 600 V standard rectifier with a 200W TVS in the compact FlatPAK 5 x 6 package.

With a wide temperature range from -55 °C to +175 °C, the device released today is suitable for high reliability automotive applications, including secondary protection for sensor units, distributed airbag modules, and low power DC/DC converters in power distribution systems.

By combining two different technologies in a single package, the dual-chip package saves PCB space, simplifies layouts, and lowers overall costs in these applications. When paired in series with a standard TVS, the R3T2FPHM3 offers designers a complete > 24 V solution with a low clamping ratio.

The two-in-one device’s rectifier features a low forward voltage drop of 0.86 V to reduce power losses and improve efficiency, while its TVS offers a breakdown voltage of 27 V. The R3T2FPHM3 provides ESD capability in compliance with IEC 61000-4-2, air discharge and contact mode.

It also has an MSL moisture sensitivity level of 1, per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of 260 °C and its molding compound features a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating. The device is RoHS-compliant and halogen-free and available in an AEC-Q101 qualified version.

Samples and production quantities of the R3T2FPHM3 are available now, with lead times of 12 weeks.
