Super Barrier diodes combine robustness and speed

Super Barrier diodes combine robustness and speed

The previously unavailable combination of important performance parameters enables the construction of highly efficient, extremely robust and yet extremely compact electronic devices for use in automotive electronics, industrial environments, server power supplies and other environments where failure is not an option. Examples of applications include high-frequency switching power supplies – for example DC/DC converters, power supply adapters, chargers and LED drivers. These diodes are also ideal for use as reverse polarity protection, freewheeling diodes and in motor control systems.

MaxPower is making the MXP40Rx product family available as the first representative of the new MaxSBR generation. It comprises six different versions with a continuous peak reverse voltage of up to 45 V, an extremely low forward bias voltage VF of only 0.36 V at a current of 1.5 A. The leakage current is ten times lower than with conventional comparable rectifier diodes. Depending on the version, the diodes are designed for rated currents between 10 A and 50 A. The components are available in either TO-277A or TO-220AB packages.

In Europe these diodes are sold exclusively through Finepower GmbH, Ismaning, Germany.
