AVX introduces lead-less Schottky rectifier diodes

AVX Corp., a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of Schottky barrier rectifier diodes uniquely packaged as lead-less chips. Eliminating the standard lead frame wire bond provides the chip with top-bottom symmetry, which enables better heat transfer, better current handling capability than SOD devices, and fewer mounting problems.  Available in several case sizes and a range of current values spanning 0.1A to 8A, the new lead-less chip form Schottky rectifier diodes are ideal for applications including switch mode power supplies, high frequency rectification, portable battery powered devices, and reverse bias protection.
