Diodes Inc has announced its first Schottky diode offered in the miniature leadless DFN0603 package. Handling switching, reverse-blocking, and rectification functions, the 30-V, 100-mA-rated SDM02U30LP3 meets the higher density design requirements of portables, including smart phones and tablets. Measuring just 0.62 x 0.32 x 0.30 mm, the DFN0603 packaged Schottky uses about 66% less board space than the industry-standard DFN1006 and SOD923 alternatives. Additionally, compared to the same packages, the DFN0603 has an off-board profile advantage, being 25% thinner. To ensure that power losses are minimized and portable battery lifetime is maximized, the SDM02U30LPS is characterised by a low forward voltage of 370 mV and a maximum leakage current of only 7 μA. The DFN0603 packaged SDM02U30LPS Schottky diode is priced at $0.15 each in 3k quantities. Diodes Inc
