By using SMD packages it makes it possible for designs to be more compact and more cost effective. Moreover, the new D²PAK real 2-pin package eliminates the middle pin to offer 4.7 mm creepage and 4.4 mm clearance distance, significantly enhancing safety margins.
The diodes have been designed for applications such as industrial power supplies. and DC charging stations, uninterruptable power supplies and solar string inverters.
The devices use Infineon’s CoolSiC Schottky diode 1200V technology G5, which offers best-in-class forward voltage and high surge current capability. In addition, it prevents reverse recovery losses and allows for temperature-independent switching behaviour. These features can help to streamline designs with lower cooling requirements and smaller magnetics when used at higher switching frequency.
The CoolSiC Schottky diodes 1200V G5 are rated from 2 A to 20 A and represent the industry’s broadest portfolio in a D²PAK real 2-pin package.
