America Semiconductor, a manufacturer of high-power semiconductors, has released a new high-voltage Schottky rectifier. 

The avalanche energy rated AK2S200-170 modules integrate two fully independent diodes in a compact, fully insulated, standard SOT-227 package. The diodes' structure and lifetime control support an ultrafast, soft recovery as well as superior performance, reliability and ruggedness characteristics.

These 200 Amp (100 Amp per diode), single-phase modules feature a low forward voltage of 0.63 V and repetitive peak reverse voltage of 170 V. Additionally, they boast a low leakage current, high blocking voltage and high maximum operation and storage junction temperature of 150°C.

America Semiconductor's new ultrafast avalanche Schottky rectifier modules are engineered for a broad range of industrial applications in which high voltage and durability are factors. Included among their most common usages are in the output rectification stage of welding machines, switchmode power supplies (SMPS), freewheeling diodes, and DC/DC converters.
