200-V Schottky barrier rectifiers support high frequency inverter applications

July 30, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Taiwan Semiconductor is extending the company's series of High Voltage Schottky Barrier Rectifiers with two new parts (20 A & 30 A) with 200 V reverse voltage, using Schottky Barrier Technology with a platinum barrier metal.

The new Schottky diodes support power supply applications using secondary side output rectification, by offering improved Schottky performance at frequencies from 250 kHz to 5.0 MHz. Typical applications are High Frequency switched mode power supplies, suitable for high power rating, DC output 24 V – 48 V.

The state of the art devices are also designed to be used in high frequency inverters, freewheeling and polarity protection applications.

As an additional advantage they can easily replace ultrafast diodes with better dynamic characteristics.
