SMT diodes require no center pin
Like many SiC diodes from SemiSouth, the new SDB05S120 parts feature a positive temperature coefficient for ease of paralleling. Switching behavior is independent of temperature and the devices have a maximum operating temperature of 175degC.
The new diodes also have a zero reverse recovery current and voltage. They have a footprint of 0.385 x 0.260in and a profile of 0.090in. The major application for these new SiC diodes lies in photo-voltaic micro-inverters, but the devices are also highly suitable for use in SMPS, Power Factor Correction circuits, induction heaters, UPS and motor drives.
