Industry’s Smallest Bipolars From Diodes Incorporated Help Shrink Portable Designs

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq:DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today introduced the industry’s first small-signal bipolar transistors to be provided in the miniature DFN0806-3 package. With a footprint of 0.48mm 2 and an off-board profile of only 0.4mm, the transistors are 20% smaller than equivalent DFN1006, SOT883 and SOT1123 parts. Their size advantage, coupled with a commendable 400mW power dissipation capability, will benefit smartphone, tablet and other space-critical portable product designs. Two complementary pairs of NPN and PNP transistors are initially being introduced by Diodes in the DFN0806-3 package, with pre-biased (digital) transistors to follow.

The NPN MMBT3904FA and PNP MMBT3906FA transistors are 40V V CE rated, handle a continuous current of 200mA and support a 500mA peak pulse current. The NPN BC847BFA and PNP BC857BFA devices are 45V rated and have continuous current and pulse current handling capabilities of 100mA and 200mA, respectively.
