Farnell element14 – High-performance audio transistors and high-reliability SiC diodes in stock (Semelab ALFET)May 3 2011 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Farnell has announced the stocking of two new high-performance product ranges from TT electronics. The first is the Semelab ALFET family of audio transistors for which Farnell will be the exclusive distributor. The second is Semelab’s SML family of six high reliability silicon carbide (SiC) diodes.
ALFET audio transistors offer high performance, a small device footprint and excellent sonic characteristics for applications in the output stages of professional audio power amplifiers. Delivering reliable and robust performance when compared to bipolar solutions, the devices feature a wide safe operating area (SOA) and offer simplified protection, which saves cost and reduces design complexity.
Semelab’s family of SiC diodes combines the attributes of silicon carbide and advanced packaging to provide high-end performance and reliability. Suitable for high-temperature operation and featuring low forward voltages, the devices are ideal for the most demanding applications including high-efficiency and high-frequency designs, says the company.
“The addition of these two high performance product ranges from the TT electronics portfolio increases the choice of device solutions we can offer to our customers,” said Richard Curtin, head of product and supplier management, Farnell Europe. “By offering specialised components like these, with applications engineering support, design engineers can utilise Farnell and the element14 online community as a one-stop resource for all their new designs.”
