M/A-COM, a business unit of Tyco Electronics, announced the availability of the miniature two-leaded plastic SC-79 package. Many of M/A-COM's high volume discrete diodes, including PIN, Schottky and varactor, are now offered in the SC-79 small surface mount package, which are RoHS compliant and meet the 260oC maximum rating often required for Pb-free processing.

"The SC-79 package complements M/A-COM's existing portfolio of surface mount plastic packages utilizing the latest in RoHS standards," said Tim Daly, product manager at M/A-COM. "We are pleased to offer this new packaging to a broad range of industries, including WLAN, broadband and telemetry, which require high volume, low cost packaging solutions."

According to the company, the low package inductance (0.6nH) allows the PIN, Schottky and varactor devices to work at frequencies significantly higher than standard diode plastic packages (SOD-323, SC-70, SOT-23 and SOT-143). The SC-79 package is suitable for high volume, low cost applications, requiring superior performance at commercial pricing.

The SC-79 packaged diodes are already available from stock and are priced as low as 14 cents each in quantities of 100,000.
