General Semiconductor Adds MUR/MURS Series to Its Ultrafast Rectifier Line

July 16, 2000 by Jeff Shepard

General Semiconductor Inc. (Melville, NY) has expanded its Ultrafast rectifier product line to include surface-mount MURS 160 and axial MUR460 and MUR160.

General Semiconductor claims that the new MUR/MURS Series incorporates a chip design and process that results in improved reverse-switching characteristics, higher reverse-surge capability and better electrostatic discharge-withstanding ability. The Ultrafast products are used primarily in monitors, uninterrupted power supplies, desktop computer power supplies and switch-mode power supplies. Additional MUR/MURS products (including 200V with improved forward voltage) are planned for introduction later in the year.
