  Diodes Incorporated’s Dual Logic Helps Extend Battery Life

Business Wire

PLANO, Texas -- January 16, 2014

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
introduction of a complete family of dual gate, advanced, ultra-low power CMOS
logic devices. Designed for low voltage, low energy operation, the miniature
74AUP2G family extends the battery cell lifetime of a variety of hand-held
consumer electronics, including cell phones, e-book readers and tablets.

With a leakage current of less than 0.9µA, the logic devices’ static power
consumption is low, and a typical power dissipation capacitance of 6pF at 3.6V
means dynamic power consumption is also minimized. Operating over the 0.8V to
3.6V range, the 74AUP2G family enables circuit supplies to be reduced to
lowest practical levels.

The ultra-low power 74AUP2G logic family is initially comprised of seven
different dual gate devices offering combinations of inversion and buffering
functions: inverters; inverters with open-drain output; buffers; buffers with
open-drain output; Schmitt trigger inverters and Schmitt trigger buffers.

To more closely meet the requirements of next generation product sizing and
manufacturing processes, each dual gate logic device is provided in a choice
of three different leadless packages: DFN0910, DFN1010 and DFN1410. Measuring
just 0.9mm x 1.0mm x 0.35mm, the DFN0910 is one of the world’s smallest
six-pin packages, enabling both space and weight savings. For further
