SubTitleIconNo02 Structure

Small and high-reliability packages

Never overlook the particles that obstruct oscillation

Introduction of termination design suitable for AOI
2.5x2.0mm/2.0x1.6mm sizes allow for ECU downsizing. These package sizes allow for a maximum of 60% downsizing capabilities compared to the 3.2x2.5mm size.

This package consists of a mechanical and weather resistant performance, along with excellent shock and drop shock resistance.
