Littelfuse Announces 1700V SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes
Offer faster switching and higher efficiency for data centres, building automation, and other high-power electronics applications
Littelfuse has announced the expansion of its SiC diodes portfolio to include the 1700 V-class.
The LSIC2SD170Bxx Series SiC Schottky Diodes are available in the TO-247-2L package with a choice of current ratings (10A, 25A, or 50A). They offer power electronics system designers a variety of performance advantages, including close-to-zero reverse recovery current, high surge capability, and a maximum operating junction temperature of 175degC. They are ideal for applications that require enhanced efficiency, reliability, and simplified thermal management.
“Using SiC diodes in power designs instead of diodes based on legacy silicon-based technology helps designers develop more energy efficient power converters, saving energy and reducing costs related to cooling the power electronics,” said Francois Perraud, product marketing manager, SiC Products at Littelfuse. “They enable the design of faster switching power electronics in the converters which can then be made more compact at the same output power or pack more power in the same volume.”
The LSIC2SD170Bxx SiC Schottky Diodes are available in the TO-247-2L package, in a tube, with a minimum order quantity of 450 devices.
