New and Improved Tandem Diodes from STMicroelectronics Deliver Economical Alternative to Silicon Carbide
STMicroelectronics has unveiled its second generation of tandem diodes, which enable designers to cost-effectively enhance the energy efficiency of equipment such as power supplies, solar inverters, and e-transportation charging points.
The second-generation devices joining ST’s 600V tandem diode range are the STTH8T06DI and STTH8ST06DI rated for 8A average forward current, and the STTH12T06DI is for applications up to 12A. The devices have peak forward surge-current ratings equivalent to those of ultrafast diodes, ensuring robustness and reliability, and a wide operating junction-temperature range of -40°C to 175°C.All devices are in mass production now in the TO-220AC isolated-tab package, priced from $1.57 for the STTH8T06DI in quantities of over 1,000 pieces.
