ON Semiconductor’s New ESD Suppression Devices in Low-Profile Package Exceed Portable Industry’s Toughest ESD Protection Standard


µESD dual series diodes provide two lines of protection for portable and battery powered applications, delivering superior ESD clamping performance and an ultra-low profile package

PHOENIX, Ariz. – August 3, 2005 - A leading global supplier of discrete devices, ON Semiconductor (NASDAQ: ONNN) today introduced the µESD (micro ESD) dual series of high performance, micro-packaged electro static discharge (ESD) protection diodes. The uESD dual series is designed to protect voltage sensitive components for two lines in applications that demand minimal board space and low profiles, such as cell phones, MP3 players and portable gaming systems.

“For designers dedicated to meeting strict ESD compliance standards, ON Semiconductor’s µESD dual devices offer a compelling alternative to commonly used Multi-Layer Varistors”, said Gary Straker, ON Semiconductor director of marketing for the Small Signal Division. “The µESD dual device can protect two lines in less board space than two 0402 MLVs, while offering numerous performance advantages by delivering lower clamping voltage, lower leakage, faster response time and ability to withstand multiple ESD strikes without undesirable shifts in electrical characteristics.”
