Fast Recovery Diodes are an essential complement to switches in DC to AC conversion and are more often than not the limiting factor in the design and performance of modern power converters. Fast diodes are optimized to accept high dynamic stress (fast transition from conducting to blocking state). These devices utilise compression bonding along with both alloyed and floating silicon technologies to deliver robust devices that you can rely on in demanding applications. Our fast recovery diodes offer:
- wide range of reverse recovery characteristics tailored to meet the requirements of both free wheeling and snubber applications,
- blocking voltages up to 6kV making them suitable for operation with DC link voltages up to 3.3 kV,
- average currents up to 4 kA depending upon type, and
- 38mm to 75mm diameter silicon slices.
