Small Signal Schottky and Switching Diodes

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced new surface-mount small signal 40V BAS40L Schottky and 100V BAS16L switching diodes which are designed to save space and improve thermal performance in automotive and industrial applications. These diodes in the ultra-compact DFN1006-2A plastic package with wettable flanks are available in AEC-Q101 qualified versions and occupy 90 % less board space than devices in traditional SOD/T packages. Moreover, these new diodes offer a moisture sensitivity level (MSL) of 1 in accordance with J-STD-020 and a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating.


Measuring only 1 mm by 0.6 mm by 0.45 mm, these new diodes offer a 50 % lower profile and better power dissipation. These diodes support automated optical inspection (AOI) for automotive systems and for protection against excessive voltage, such as electrostatic discharges, the BAS40L features a PN junction guard ring.



  • Leadless ultra-small DFN1006-2A package (1 mm × 0.6 mm × 0.45 mm)

  • Surface-mounted device (SMD) plastic package with visible and sidewall plated / wettable flanks

  • Soldering can be checked by standard visual inspection. No X-ray inspection necessary to meet automotive AOI requirements

  • AEC-Q101 qualified available

  • This diode features very low turn-on voltage and fast switching

  • This device is protected by a PN junction guard ring against excessive voltage, such as electrostatic discharges

  • Power dissipation better than SOT-23



  • Automotive applications

  • Industrial applications



Samples and production quantities of the BAS40L and BAS16L diodes are now available with lead times of 12 weeks for large orders.
