Bourns, Inc. announced the availability of its new low profile transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diode, designated Bourns® Model CDDFN2-T3.3B. Bourns designed its new low capacitance (13 pF) diode in a smaller surface mount package as an optimal ESD, EFT and surge protection solution. The new TVS diode provides reliable circuit protection for external ports in a broad range of electronic devices such as computers and peripherals, communication systems, cellular phones, handheld portable electronics and audio and video equipment.
The Bourns® Model CDDFN2-T3.3B TVS diode is tested to IEC protection standards -- IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD), IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) and IEC 61000-4-5 (Surge). This latest low profile diode measures only 1.0 mm x 0.60 mm x 0.55 mm and is available in a DFN-2 package. It is designed to be mounted directly onto an FR4 printed circuit board, and its package size meets the surface mount component 0402 footprint.
This device is intended to replace Bourns® Model CDDFN2-T3.3LC surface mount TVS Diode, which was recently obsoleted.
As a pricing reference, the Bourns® Model CDDFN2-T3.3B is priced from $0.13 in 12,000 piece quantities, is available now and is RoHS compliant.
