Eight new 100V and 200V devices in the eSMP series SlimSMAW (DO-221AD) package with a low 0.9 mm profile have been added to Vishay Intertechnology’s FRED Pt Ultrafast recovery rectifiers.

The FRED recovery rectifiers are footprint-compatible with the common SOD-128.The Vishay Semiconductors diodes feature larger lead widths than devices in the SlimSMA for increased reliability.

The 2A and 3A rectifiers offer high current density, while their wide leads provide stronger adhesion to the PCB and improve automated optical inspection (AOI) in automotive systems.

FRED Pt Ultrafast technology enables ultrafast recovery times down to 16ns at TJ = 25°C, reduced Qrr to 20nC, and soft recovery features over the entire working temperature range of 55°C to +175°C.

Available in AEC-Q101 qualified versions, the rectifiers feature low forward voltage drop down to 0.69 V, which reduces power losses and improves efficiency in high frequency inverters, DC/DC converters, freewheeling diodes, and power factor correction in automotive engine control units (ECU), anti-lock braking systems (ABS), and HID and LED lighting, and telecom and industrial power supplies.

The devices offer an MSL moisture sensitivity level of 1, per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of +260 °C.

RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the diodes are ideal for automated placement.

Samples and production quantities of the new FRED Pt Ultrafast rectifiers are available now, with lead times of 14 weeks for large orders.
