AEC-Q101-qualified soft reverse and low forward voltage 600V ultrafast diodes to boost OBC efficiency

Discover ST’s new ‘RQ’ series of automotive-grade 600V ultrafast diodes tailored to boost conversion efficiency in DC/DC converters and on-board chargers (OBCs).
The new STTH15RQ06-Y, STTH30RQ06-Y and STTH60RQ06-Y – 15A to 60A forward current rated – feature a unique trade-off between a soft reverse recovery to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) and a low forward voltage (V F) to improve efficiency in DC/DC converters. Samples are available in the D²PAK surface-mount and TO-220AC and DO-247 through-hole package versions.
