ESD Protection Diodes Protect High-Speed Interfaces Of Mobile Devices


Toshiba announced four new ESD protection diodes to shield mobile devices from electrostatic discharge and noise. The TVS diodes are designed for use in smartphones, tablets, laptop PCs, and wearable devices.

“By applying a new process which uses our proprietary snapback technology, these products feature low capacitance, low dynamic resistance and high endurance simultaneously,” noted Talayeh Saderi, business development manager for TAEC. “They are extremely robust and should contribute to system reliability.”

The diodes offer high protection performance with low dynamic resistance of RDYN=0.5 Ω (typ.). This is an improvement of 50 percent compared with conventional products using conventional ESD protection diode array process.

Other key features include suppression of signal quality deterioration via low capacitance, high electrostatic discharge voltage which is about 2 times more than conventional process products, and low clamp voltage.


The DF2B5M4SL and DF2B6M4SL are offered in a small SOD-962 (0.62×0.32 mm) package making them suitable for high density mounting, while the DF10G5M4N and DF10G6M4N’s DFN10 multibit package enables flow-through layouts.

Toshiba’s new ESD protection diodes are available now. For further details, view the full Press release.
