Tiny micropower hall-effect switches from Diodes deliver compatibility with low-voltage chipsets

Diodes has introduced three new Hall-effect switches, the AH1899A/B/S, which operate from a low supply voltage and at extremely low quiescent current to extend battery lifetime in mobile and portable devices. The AH1899A/B/S are used to detect the open/closed status of covers and cases for portable electronic devices, such as smartphones and tablets. They are also designed for proximity detection in digital cameras and handheld gaming consoles, as well as general contactless switching.

Industry’s first 2A schottky rectifiers from Diodes are smallest in class

Diodes has announced its SDT2U30CP3 (30V/2A), SDT2U40CP3 (40V/2A), and SDT2U60CP3 (60V/2A) achieve the industry’s highest current densities in their class with low forward voltage drop and thermal resistance addressing design challenges for smaller and more efficient portable, mobile, and wearable devices. This series of innovative high-current trench Schottky rectifiers are housed in a chip-scale package (CSP) that occupies only 0.84mm² board space. They can be employed for a variety of different purposes, serving as blocking or reverse-polarity protection diodes, boost diodes, and switching diodes.
