SMD avalanche rectifier features reverse voltage of 1,300-V and 75-ns reverse recovery time
April 05, 2012 // Paul Buckley
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released a new high-voltage, ultrafast surface-mount avalanche rectifier in the plastic DO-214AC package. The BYG23T combines a low 1.98 mm profile with high reverse voltage of 1,300 V and fast 75 ns reverse recovery time.
The rectifier is optimized for high-voltage, high-frequency rectification in switchmode power supplies (SMPS), HID ignition drives, and industrial ballasts. The BYG23T features low typical reverse current of 2.9 µA at +125°C, 5 mJ pulse energy in avalanche mode, forward current of 1.0 A, and forward voltage of 1.39 V at 1 A and +125°C.
Ideal for automated placement, the BYG23T offers a rugged maximum operating junction temperature of + 150°C and an MSL moisture sensitivity level of 1, per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of + 260°C. The device is compliant to RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and halogen-free according to IEC 61249-2-21.
Samples and production quantities of the BYG23T are available now.
