Vishay Intertechnology has recently released a new ESD protection array that integrates an EMI filter in a leadless LLP75 package optimised for space-critical applications.

Measuring 1.6mm by 1.6mm with a 0.7mm height profile, the new GTF701-HS3-GS08 two-channel EMI filter reportedly offers EMI and bi-directional ESD protection in compact end products including mobile phone handsets, laptop computers, PDAs, digital cameras, modems, GPS devices, and two-way pagers.

Vishay says the new diode array provides transient protection for two data lines, meeting Level 4 IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) specifications of 15kV (air) and 8kV (contact), as well as the IEC 61000-4-5 (lightning) specification of 5A.

In addition to space-saving dimensions and EMI and ESD protection, the new Vishay Semiconductors device is said to provide very good electrical performance. It features a low insertion loss of -4dB over a range from 1MHz to 10MHz, a low maximum reverse stand-off voltage of 5V, low reverse leakage current, and low clamping voltage – a maximum of 15V (5 A, 8/20µs). Good attenuation of high-frequency signals is ensured with transmission values of -10 dB for signals between 100MHz and 3000MHz.

Built on thin-film-on-silicon technology in an LLP75-6A plastic package, this ESD protection array is specified for a UL 94V-0 moulding compound flammability rating, high-temperature soldering up to 260 degrees C, and an operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C.

The GTF701-HS3-GS08 ESD protection diode array and EMI filter combines cost and space savings with excellent electrical performance, representing a high industry standard and providing a cost-effective solution for high-volume mainstream applications.

Samples and production quantities of this ESD protection array with integrated EMI filter are available now with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
