With typical and maximum reverse current ratings at 30V of 1?A and 4?A, respectively, the new Schottky barrier diode from Zetex Semiconductors helps extend battery life in a broad range of applications, from chargers to LED drivers.

According to Stephen Lin, VP of Zetex Asia, the 40V rated ZLLS350 has an increased maximum permissible operating temperature. Often a limitation of Schottky devices, this new diode takes the temperature specification from 125C up to 150C. Current handling is also high, with continuous forward current quoted at 380mA.

The Schottky's 1.7-by-0.9mm footprint helps in the quest to reduce board size, and its 0.8mm off-board height addresses height restrictions. With 100 percent matte tin plated external pins, the ZLLS350 is designated Pb-free and is supplied in 3,000-unit and 10,000-unit tape and reel.
