Rectifier in DO-214AA Package Optimized for Space Constrained Applications

SMC Diode Solutions announced the availability a general-purpose high voltage SMD rectifier in low-profile (DO-214AA) size format. The SD560B rectifier uniquely combines a compact footprint and 2.5mm profile with an average rectified output current (IO) rating of 5A continuous and a reverse voltage (VRRM) rating of 600V.  The component additionally provides a robust forward surge rating (IFSM) of 200A, making it well suited for switching and linear power supplies.  

Primarily specified as an input rectifier to convert alternating line voltage to usable DC, the SD560B is appropriate in an extensive range of uses, such as a general-purpose rectifier, freewheeling diode, or reverse polarity protection device in applications where space is limited and long life and reliability are critical.  The device is employed in an array of electronic devices and equipment, including high voltage regulated power supplies, switchmode power supplies, UPSs, AC-DC adapters/chargers, DC-DC converters, lighting circuits, industrial ballasts, temperature and motor speed control circuits.   

SMC’s SD560B provides a low forward voltage drop (VF) of 1.2V max. (IF = 5A) to reduce heat dissipation and maximize energy efficiency, as well as a low idle current of 9µA max. (TA = 25°C, 600V) to minimize reverse energy loss.  Typical junction capacitance (Cj) is 50pF @ 4V, 1MHz.
