Nexperia ups spec on in-vehicle network diodes

Nexperia in-vehicle network protection diodes

Nexperia, the former standard products division of NXP, has announced in-vehicle network protection diodes that offer a higher surge current, better ESD robustness and an improvement in ESD clamping performance.

The AEC-Q101 qualified PESDxIVN series of surface mount devices is optimised for the latest generation of Can, Lin and Flexray transceivers.

The parts are drop-in replacement for legacy devices, available in SOT23, SOD323 and SOT323 packages. However, they deliver higher performance.

For example, PESD2IVN24-T parts deliver a 30kV ESD robustness up from 23kV on the legacy PESD1CAN, an improved surge current of 3.5A and better clamping of 42V at 3.5A; it was 70V at 3A.

Other parameters remain constant or slightly better. The PESD1IVN27-A offers the same improvement in ESD robustness with a lower clamping voltage compared with the legacy PESD1LIN.

“In modern vehicles there is an increasing amount of data exchange and the electronic content is growing in functionality and complexity, therefore effective ESD protection is imperative,” said André Dressler, Nexperia’s marketing manager for automotive. “Nexperia has brought on-line a massive capacity increase for ESD diodes in order to guarantee a secure chain, and provide customers with peace of mind that they are protecting the electronics in their vehicles with high-performance, rugged and efficient devices.”
