Engineers looking to improve the efficiency of their mid-range SMPS designs benefit from ST's extensive experience in the semiconductor manufacturing industry and as a leading technology innovator.
ST's Schottky and Ultrafast diode portfolio includes 650 to 1200 V SiC and 45 to 100 V field-effect rectifier diodes (FERD) ensuring that designers can take advantage of the very latest technologies to develop cost-efficient, high-efficiency converter/inverter solutions. Depending on the targeted application and its voltage, developers can choose from a wide range of devices to ensure the best compromise in terms of forward voltage drop (VF) and leakage current (IR) as well as other characteristics.
ST also offers a wide range of automotive-grade diodes qualified to the AEC-Q101 standard and intended for DC-DC converters used in numerous automotive functions.
Tools allow designers to quickly find the field-effect rectifier or Schottky diode that best fits their application using our online Schottky & FERD eTool simulator. Computer-aided decision-making functions and a powerful search engine enable SMPS designers and component engineers to rapidly make a clear decision about which field-effect rectifier or Schottky diode is best suited for their application. Available in both English and Chinese, an intuitive online help helps you get started and includes concrete examples and snapshots. In addition, to help developers quickly identify the best product for their application, our ST Diode Finder mobile app for smartphones and tablets includes a detailed parametric search engine, a fast view of the most important electrical parameters of any diode, and more.
Ideal for confined applications where efficiency and thermal performance are key
For high-power SMPS, snubber circuits, free-wheeling
Unbeatable efficiency and robustness
For PFC and secondary side applications
The best-in-class forward voltage drop
New ultrafast and power Schottky diodes deliver high power in 1.1 mm high, extra-slim package
In addition to having a low forward voltage drop and avalanche capability, these ultrafast and Schottky barrier rectifiers, which are rated from 30 to 200 V with a current rating from 5 to 12 A, help ensure greater compactness of equipment, with increased power density and efficiency, in a large range of applications including car modules, industrial equipment, telecom power systems and personal electronics.
