Combining extremely fast and soft recovery characteristics with low leakage current and low forward voltage drop, the AEC-Q101-qualified rectifiers reduce switching losses and over-dissipation in automotive and telecom applications.
The Vishay Semiconductor's FRED Pt rectifiers offer reverse voltages of 100 V and 200 V, reverse recovery time down to 25 ns, and typical forward voltage drop of 0.74 V for the 2 A and 0.72 V for the 3 A devices. With a compact footprint and low profile of <1 mm, the SlimSMA saves significant PCB space compared to standard SMA, SMB, and SMC packages, while increasing power density to lower overall costs.
The FRED Pt rectifiers are optimized for DC/DC converters in automotive engine control units (ECU), anti-lock braking systems (ABS), and LED lighting, in addition to telecom DC/DC bricks. The devices feature a planar structure and platinum doped lifetime control to guarantee high overall performance, ruggedness, and reliability characteristics in these applications. The components offer an operating junction temperature to +175°C for a more robust design.
The devices provide an MSL moisture level of 1 per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of +260°C, meet the JESD 201 class 2 whisker test, and are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free. The rectifiers are ideal for automated placement and allow for automated optical inspection (AOI) in automotive systems.
These devices are intended for use in snubber, output operation, inverters, or as free-wheeling diodes.
