TDK Corporation (Iselin, NJ) announced a new series of EPCOS multilayer varistors of the CeraDiode family, which includes the most compact, flattest and most rugged varistor for ESD protection of mobile equipment. It features a footprint of only 0.47 mm x 0.47 mm at an extremely low profile of 0.1 mm in LGA packaging. Available in EIA case sizes 0402, 0201, and even smaller, these components enable production of devices that are about 80 percent smaller than their predecessors while offering extremely reliable ESD protection. Features include:
- Compact dimensions: 0402, 0201 and smaller.
- Low insertion height: 0.1 mm.
- High ESD immunity: up to 25 kV.
- Terminal voltages of less than 100 V at 8 kV (IEC-6100-4-2).
