Solid State Devices, Inc. (SSDI) announced the release its latest silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky rectifiers, the SSR15C120D1 series. These 15A, 500- to 1200-Volt devices replace the SSR05C100 series and offer higher output current, reverse voltage, and peak surge current (30 ) ratings than its predecessor.
One of the key advantages of SiC Schottky products is the excellent performance at high temperatures, which is demonstrated by SSR15C120D1's low forward voltage drop of 1.5V and low reverse leakage of 100µA at 175°C.
With no reverse / forward recovery or switching time change over temperature, these high efficiency components are intended for use in bridge rectifiers, high voltage power supplies, switches and power controls.
The SSR15C120 series is available in the TO-252 surface mount package, but are also available in hermetic packages.
