Littelfuse announced a series of silicon Schottky devices designed for ultra-low forward voltage drop (VF), which are well-suited for use in high-frequency applications.
What it delivers
This component is designed for high frequency application such as switch-mode power supplies, as well as DC applications such as solar panel bypass diode and polarity protection diodes.
By delivering performance superior to conventional switching diodes, they offer high junction temperature capability, low leakage and ultra-low forward voltage drop. Their higher junction temperature capability and low leakage provide higher reliability in harsh, high-temperature environments.
“The DST Series’ ultra-low forward voltage drop performance is an important new addition to the growing Littelfuse power semiconductor device offering,”
— Corey Deyalsingh, director of power control semiconductors at Littelfuse
DST Series Schottky Barrier Rectifiers offer these key benefits:
• Their ultra-low forward voltage drop (VF) reduces thermal and electrical conduction losses, thereby improving system efficiency.
• Because they provide fast switching, they can be used in very high frequency applications with minimal switching loss.
• Their high junction temperature capability ensures high reliability in high ambient temperatures or in applications with minimal cooling available.
DST Series Schottky Barrier Rectifiers are available in a variety of package types and sizes, including TO-263 (D2PAK), ITO-252 (DPAK), ITO-220AB, TO-220AB, TO-220AC, P600, PDFN5x6-8L, and TO 277B. They are sold in reels or tubes, depending on the package type selected. Sample requests can be placed through authorized Littelfuse distributors worldwide.[/restrict]
