Ultrafast rectifiers save space, increase power density and improve thermal performance

08-11-2017 | Vishay | Power

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced 13 new 200V and 600V FRED Pt Ultrafast recovery rectifiers in the eSMP series SlimDPAK (TO-252AE) package, each available in automotive grade and commercial/industrial versions. The rectifiers offer lower profiles and better thermal performance than devices in the DPAK (TO-252AA). They also deliver high power density and efficiency for automotive and telecom applications. The devices released today combine a low 1.3mm profile with high forward current ratings to 10A for 200V rectifiers and 15A for 600V rectifiers. Footprint-compatible with the DPAK package, the devices' profile is 43% lower to enable slimmer end products, while their heatsink area is 14% larger for lower thermal resistance. In addition, new 15A rectifiers provide an alternative to devices in the D2PAK (TO-263AB) package.
