OnChip Devices has introduced a miniature diode with a case size of 0402 or 1mm x 0.6mm and with a package height of 0.5mm. The ESD0402-01FR has back-to-back diodes for bi-directional AC signals and is designed for use in 5V environment. It can safely dissipate ESD strikes of 8kV contact discharge per the requirements of the IEC 61000-4-2 international standard. The small size DFN-2 package makes this device ideal for space sensitive portable electronics such as cellphones, digital cameras, PDAs, MP3 players and GPS handsets. At less than 1 ?A, its leakage current is among the lowest in the industry. This is an important factor in battery-powered portable devices. The diode also offers a low breakdown voltage of 9V (typical) and reliably protects electronics systems against transients and ESD events. It is compliant with RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC.

"Miniaturization continues to be a key factor in consumer electronics and OnChip has become a significant partner to major OEMs worldwide in developing state-of-the-art ESD products to meet their stringent needs." said Ashok Chalaka, president and CEO on OnChip Devices. "Our diodes offer small footprints and maximum reliability to ensure their systems are properly protected against ESD and transient voltages. At OnChip, we are setting the standards in the industry by offering diodes that are the smallest with the highest levels of ESD protection."

The OnChip ESD0402-01FR is available with a production pricing of $0.035.
