IR Intros 60APU06/60EPU06 Platinum-Diffused Diodes

International Rectifier Corp. (IR, El Segundo, CA) introduced its new 600 V rated 60APU06 and 60EPU06 platinum-diffused, ultra-fast recovery, epitaxial diodes, which are suitable for output rectification in industrial switch-mode power supplies such as high-frequency and ac tungsten inert gas welding machines in the 80 A to 200 A dc output range, where 600 V devices are recommended due to voltage spikes.

The new diodes offer 200 V, 300 V, 400 V and 600 V blocking voltages; 8 A to 60 A average current ratings at various speeds; a 600 V rating; a “soft” recovery current waveshape; high-current operation at a switching frequency above 50 kHz; low forward-voltage drop; low reverse-recovery energy; a low thermal resistance of 0.63kW (maximum); a high allowable junction temperature of 175 °C (maximum); a forward voltage of 1.42 V; and a 60 A current rating at 116 °C case temperature.

Pricing is $2.56 each for the 60APU06 in the three-lead TO-247 package, or the 60EPU06 in the two-lead TO-247 package, in 10,000-unit quantities. The new devices are available now.
