Vishay FRED Pt rectifiers

Vishay Intertechnology has unveiled 10 FRED Pt solderable rectifiers that feature Hyperfast and Ultrafast recovery. These rectifiers include 3-A and 4-A devices in SMB (DO-214AA) packages, 3-A devices in SMA (DO-214AC) packages and 4-A and 5-A devices in SMC (DO-214AB) packages.

These components combine fast and soft recovery characteristics with low forward-voltage drop and low leakage current, which enables them to reduce switching losses in consumer products, LCD TVs, power supplies, and electronic ballast lighting.

Ultrafast rectifiers offer the advantage of lower forward voltage, while Hyperfast devices provide a lower reverse-recovery charge. FRED Pt rectifiers are built with a planar, platinum-doped process to ensure high overall performance, ruggedness, and reliability characteristics. The devices have an operating junction temperature of up to 175°C.

Samples and production quantities of the new FRED Pt rectifiers are available now, with lead times of 12 weeks for larger orders. Prices for US delivery only start at $0.13.
