Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has uncloaked a series of surface-mount ESD protection diodes in the low-profile SMF package. For portable electronics, SMFxxA series devices provide high surge capability of 200W at 10/1000µs, indicated the company.

With their low 1mm profile, low-noise technology and very fast response times, the Vishay Semiconductors devices are geared for line transient voltage protection in space-constrained electronics such as laptops, notebooks, tablets, external hard drives and more, stated the firm.

The SMFxxA series consists of 32 devices with working voltages from 5-58V. The devices offer a peak pulse current from 2.1-21.7A, excellent clamping capability from 9.2-95V, low incremental surge resistance, and operating temperatures from -55°C to 150°C, detailed Vishay.


The protection diodes provide ESD capability of ±30kV (air and contact discharge) in accordance with IEC 61000-4-2, support high-temperature soldering to 260°C/10s at their terminals, and meet the MSL Level 1 standard per J-STD-020. The devices are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay Automotive Grade.

Samples of the SMFxxA series are available. Production quantities will be available in 4Q13, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
