1200V Schottky Diodes in Compact and Cost Effective 2-pin Package
Infineon Technologies AG has introduced 6 new devices as an expansion to its Cool Sic Schottky diodes 1200V portfolio in a D²PAK real 2-pin package to make the design more compact and cost-effective and to eliminate the middle pin to offer 4.7 mm creepage and 4.4 mm clearance distance. The new devices have enhanced safety margins than the standard D²PAK package, hence they are suitable for applications such as Industrial power supplies and DC charging stations, uninterrupted power supplies, and solar string inverters.
The new devices use Infineon’s CoolSiC Schottky diode 1200 V technology G5 rates from 2A to 20A, it offers best-in-class forward voltage and high surge current capability and prevents reverse recovery losses and allows for temperature-independent switching behavior. These features can streamline designs with lower cooling requirements and smaller magnetics when used at the higher switching frequency. With this new SiC diodes, designers can reach a new level of power density and reliability compared to Si solutions.
