Recovery rectifiers operate at +175 degrees C
The new FRED Pt recovery rectifiers from Vishay are available through TTI in Europe. With their fast and soft recovery characteristics, low leakage current, and low forward voltage drop of 0.93V, the components reduce switching losses and over-dissipation in automotive and telecom applications, e.g. DC/DC converters in engine control units (ECU), antilock braking systems (ABS), LED lighting and telecom DC/DC bricks.
The AEC-Q101-qualified FRED Pt ultrafast recovery rectifiers come in the low-profile SlimSMA package, feature forward currents of up to 3A and a fast reverse recovery time down to 25ns.
Further technical details include an operating junction temperature of up to +175°C, a reverse voltage of 100V and 200V, and a MSL moisture level of 1 per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of +260°C.
Fully RoHS compliant and halogen free, the devices meet the JESD 201 class 2 whisker test, are ideal for automated placement and allow for automated optical inspection (AOI) in automotive systems
