Cree is the first manufacturer to offer this comprehensive range of current ratings for commercially available 1200 V SiC Schottky diodes in the surface mount D-Pak package.

Designers of systems, such as solar micro inverters, now have more options to develop smaller, lighter and less costly power conversion circuits. The new surface mount devices deliver the same proven performance as Cree’s TO-220 Schottky diodes, but with a smaller PCB footprint and lower profile.

Cree’s C4D02120E Series Schottky diodes are rated for 2-A/1200-V; the C4D05120E Series diodes are rated for 5-A/1200-V; the C4D08120E Series diodes are rated for 8-A/1200-V; and the C4D10120E Series diodes are rated for 10-A/1200-V. Operating junction temperature for all C4DXX120E devices is rated for -55 to +175 °C.

The C4DXX120E surface mount Schottky diodes are fully qualified and released for production use. Check with Cree for availability of devices in die form.
