Tiny Schottkys Save Space But Perform Bigger

Housed in an ultra-small 0201 Dual Silicon No-lead (DSN2) chip-level package, four 30-V Schottky barrier diodes offer portable electronics designers both the industry’s smallest Schottky diode and a best-in-class space-performance ratio. These Schottky diodes are available with low forward voltage or low reverse current at forward current ratings of either 100 mA or 200 mA, with the latter claimed as the industry’s smallest 200-mA-rated parts. They are suited for space-restricted applications such as mobile handsets, MP3 players and digital cameras. These diodes feature solderable metal contacts under the package that enable 100% utilization of the package area for active silicon. The new 0201 DSN-2 package, which measures 0.6 mm x 0.3 mm x 0.3 mm, saves three times the board space compared to the popular SOD-923 (also known as 0402). The NSR0xF30NXT5G series devices are optimized for low forward-voltage drop of 370 mV at 10 mA, which further reinforces the advanced, high-performance specification of the series. The NSR0xL30NXT5G series devices are designed for low reverse current of 2.0 µA at 10 V reverse voltage and offer very low leakage, extending battery life. ON SEMICONDUCTOR, Phoenix, AZ.
