ESD Capable Rectifier



A new family of electro-static discharge (ESD) capable rectifiers from Taiwan Semiconductor.

All TSDxx parts have a repetitive peak reverse voltage (VRRM) of 400 V and forward current ratings (IF(AV)) of 1 A to 3 A in package types SOD-123W, SMA, SMB and SMC packages. These parts are glass passivated and offer low forward voltage drop (VF), high surge current capability (IFSM) and high ESD immunity rating to various standards.

The TSDxx family of components are AEC-Q101 certified and can be applied to general purpose rectification, polarity protection, and rail-to-rail protection in both consumer and automotive applications.


  • High ESD capability
  • Glass passivated chip junction
  • Ideal for automated placement
  • Low forward voltage drop
  • High surge current capability
  • Compliant to RoHS
  • Halogen-free


  • Switching mode power supply (SMPS)
  • Adapters
  • Lighting application
  • Converter

New Production Lines for SMA, SMB, SMC

In response to increased demand, Taiwan Semiconductor has added new state-of-the-art back-end assembly and test production capacity for SMA and SMB packages. Similar capacity expansion for SMC packages will follow soon.

These state of the art "Matrix lines" are highly automated and will have a positive impact on lead times and short-term availability of products in these popular packages.
