Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver
Can somebody please tell me what type of diode D5 is? It's adjacent to the USB socket on the other side of the pcb.
If anyone has a component list and/or schematic I'd love that too. Please advise & I'll supply email address.
TomTom One uses a Linear Technologies chip LTC3455 as a USB/charger power controller. See http://cds.linear.com/docs/Datasheet/3455fc.pdf. This chip is susceptible to high transient voltages that result from resonances created by parasitic inductances and capacitances of the USB/in-car charger cable . Good designs using this chip suggest that a 1 ohm resistance be put in the path of the cable to reduce the Q of the resonance and hence transient voltages. A 6V Zener diode D5 also serves to protect the chip from these transients.
If the Zener diode is blown it is most likely the the LTC3455 chip is gone as well. You can replace the chip which costs £5.00 (located in the shielded portion of the PCB). The recommended Zener Diodes for this chip are either the EDZ5.6B or EDZ6.2B manufactured by ROHM (http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz5.6b.pdf or http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz6.2b.pdf). These can be used to replace D5. The STMicroeletronics SM2T6V8A can also be used to replace D5 (http://www.st.com/stonline/products/literature/ds/8694/sm2t.pdf). All the Zeners cost a modest £0.22. I hope this is helpful.

If its the tomtom one xl.D5 is a surface mount rectifier diode.equivlent to the conventional diode 1n4007

I have noticed that the D5 diode has burned out on many a Tomtom one xl. Tomtom knows this, that is why warranty is for a year and why they have no out-of-warranty repair. I sent the info to Consumer Reports.
