Rated at 650V blocking voltage and 50A continuous forward current, Cree’s C5D50065D Schottky diode is the first member of Cree’s high power CPW5 diode family in packaged form. Available in a TO-247-3 package, the C5D5065D provides up to 2000A of non-repetitive surge capability at 25°C, combined with the high continuous current-carrying capability of the CPW5 family. The 50A rectifier is suited for demanding applications, such as automotive on-board chargers, server power supplies, power conditioning, and high-reliability aerospace and military power systems.
Developed to provide increased switching efficiency through a reduced forward voltage, the CVFD20065A Schottky diode provides 20A of forward current capability with a nominal voltage drop of only 1.35V at 25°C and is the first product to be released as part of Cree’s new family of Low VF Z-Rec Schottky diodes. Cree has also increased the surge capability of the CVFD20065A, resulting in a forward surge rating of 1400A at 25°C (10 μsec pulse) – the highest among all commercially available 20A, 650V SiC Schottky diodes. The 20A rectifier is available in a TO-220-2 package and is rated for a blocking voltage of 650V. With its increased switching efficiency and exceptionally high surge capability, the new 20A diode was designed with HVAC power supplies and switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) in mind, but is also suited for motor drives and power inverters operating in the 5-10kW range.
