PLANO, Texas -- June 13, 2013

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier
of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad
discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today announced the
monolithic integration of a transistor, Zener diode and resistor into a
standard SOT89 package. With this integration, the ZXTR200x family of
high-voltage regulators from Diodes Incorporated boosts power-circuit
densities through reductions in component count and footprint. Principle
applications for the devices are in networking, telecom and
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) where they are ideal voltage supply regulators for
primary-side controllers in 48V DC-DC PSUs.

The ZXTR2005Z, ZXTR2008Z and ZXTR2012Z regulator transistors provide designers
with high-voltage regulation by taking a nominal 48V input and generating
fixed output voltages of 5V, 8V and 12V, where standard linear regulators
cannot be used.

The line and load regulation capabilities within the devices safeguard
continuous operation by preventing latch-up from transient voltage drops.
Additionally, the unique structure allows the input to successfully tolerate
spurious voltages up to a maximum of 100V, creating a safety margin in the
event of transient over-voltage conditions. For further information, visit the
