650-Volt SiC Power Schottky Rectifier Series Lowers System Costs

September 12, 2018 by Paul Shepard

SMC Diode Solutions announced the SICR5650, SICR6650 and SICR10650 Series of 650V silicon carbide (SiC) Power Schottky Rectifiers.  The high-voltage series boast state-of-the industry silicon carbide technology, which provides very low total conduction losses and very stables switching characteristics over temperature extremes.

The single diode SICR5650 and SICR6650 Schottky rectifiers support average rectified currents of 5A and 6A respectively, whereas the common cathode, dual center-tapped SICR 10650 parts are provided with rectified currents of 5A and 10A.

Featuring zero reverse recovery, together with switching speeds independent of operating temperature, the series are especially suited for employment in alternative energy inverters, power factor correction (PFC), and free-wheeling diodes.  They are also appropriate in switching supply output rectification and reverse polarity protection applications.

SMC Diode Solutions’ SiC power Schottky rectifiers can withstand high forward surge currents while ensuring robust performance over their -55 °C to +175 °C operating junction temperature range.  These Lead (Pb) Free plated devices also feature high package isolation voltage and a guard ring for enhanced ruggedness and long-term reliability.

Additional electrical and life testing can be performed upon customer request.  All SMC Diodes’ parts are traceable to the wafer lot.

The SICR5650 and SICR6650 Series are available in TO-220AC, D2PAK, DPAK or ITO-220AC packages; SICR10650 parts are provided in TO-220AB, D2PAK, DPAK or ITO-220AB packages.

SMC Diode Solutions’ SiC power Schottky rectifiers are available at in sample and production quantities.
