Cree launches discrete 20A and 50A 650V SiC

First member of Cree’s high-power CPW5 diode family to be released in packaged form
Cree, Inc has announced the addition of two new discrete 650V SiC rectifiers to its Z-Rec Schottky diode portfolio.

Rated at 650V blocking voltage and 50A continuous forward current, Cree's C5D50065D Schottky diode is the first member of Cree's high power CPW5 diode family to be released in packaged form.

Available in a TO-247-3 package, the C5D5065D provides up to 2000A of non-repetitive surge capability at 25 degrees C, combined with the high continuous current-carrying capability of the CPW5 family. The 50A rectifier is suited for automotive on-board chargers, server power supplies, power conditioning, and high-reliability aerospace and military power systems.

Developed to provide increased switching efficiency through a reduced forward voltage, the CVFD20065A Schottky diode provides 20A of forward current capability with a nominal voltage drop of only 1.35V at 25 degrees C and is the first product to be released as part of Cree’s new family of Low VF Z-Rec Schottky diodes.

Cree has also taken additional steps to bolster the surge capability of the CVFD20065A, resulting in a forward surge rating of 1400A at 25 degrees C (10µs pulse) – which the company says is the highest among all commercially available 20A, 650V SiC Schottky diodes.
