Vishay Releases 45V TMBS Trench MOS Barrier Schottky Rectifiers for Solar Bypass Applications

January 20, 2011 by Jeff Shepard

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. expanded its TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers for solar bypass applications with four new 45V devices offering eSMP® surface-mount and axial-leaded package options. The devices are designed to enable higher current densities in low-voltage, high-frequency inverters, and solar cell junction boxes, where they will be used as bypass diodes for photovoltaic solar cell protection.

The 10 A V10P45S and 15 A V15P45S are offered in surface-mount SMPC packages with a typical height of 1.1 mm. Designed for automated placement, the SMPC package meets MSL Level 1.

Axial-leaded rectifiers released today include the 15A VSB1545 and 20A VSB2045 in the P600 package. The devices can handle solder dip temperatures to 275°C for 10 seconds per JESD 22-B106, and feature a maximum junction temperature of +150°C.

The TMBS rectifiers combine their high forward surge capability with low forward voltage drops down to 0.30 V to minimize power losses. The devices are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and are halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition.

Samples and production quantities of the new 45 V TMBS rectifiers are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery begins at $0.80 for SMPC and axial-leaded devices in quantities below 10,000 pieces.
