Rohm claims to have smallest transistor package
Rohm Semiconductor says it has developed the smallest transistor package on the market. The VML0806 measures just 0.8mm x 0.6mm, with a height of only 0.36mm.
With current miniaturisation, bonding stability, package process accuracy, and surface mount technology, the smallest conventional transistors are the 1006 size (1.0mm x 0.6mm x 0.37mm).
Rohm says it has overcome these challenges by using a smaller element and high-precision package process technology.
Rohm will initially offer this new package for small-signal mosfets.
Future implementations will include bipolar and digital transistors.
