The SiC diode is an ultrahigh performance power Schottky diode. It is manufactured using a silicon carbide substrate. The wide band gap material allows the design of a Schottky diode structure with a 650 V rating. Due to the Schottky construction, no recovery is shown at turn-off and ringing patterns are negligible. The minimized capacitive charge at turn-off behavior is independent of temperature.
Especially suited for use in interleaved or bridge-less topologies, this dual-diode rectifier will boost the performance in hard switching conditions. Its high forward surge capability ensures a good robustness during transient phases.
- No or negligible reverse recovery
- Switching behavior independent of temperature
