The symmetrical SOD-323 flat-lead package style used by the new Vishay Semiconductors PLZ series diodes gives them compact footprints and low profiles of <0.6mm, which is smaller than comparable diodes in plastic or glass surface-mount packages. It helps designers to save PCB space, and also supports production engineers’ efforts to increase pick-and-place speed in the assembly line.
Combining extremely tight voltage tolerances with low leakage current and excellent stability, the PLZ series is able to withstand ESD pulses of 8,000V (human body model). The diodes offer a voltage tolerance of ±2.5%.
The diodes feature a planar structure which provides for high performance, ruggedness and reliability. They are ideal for voltage stabilisation and reference-voltage generation in power supplies and LED lighting.
