Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has released a series of high-current-density Schottky rectifiers that provide high efficiency and space savings with high forward current ratings in three compact package sizes.

The SSA23L through SSC54 Schottky rectifiers in the SMA, SMB, and SMC packages are designed for use in power supplies, high-frequency dc-dc converters, high-frequency inverters, free-wheeling diodes and polarity protection in end products including power supply systems, notebook PCs, motherboards, LCD monitors, DVD players, printers and battery chargers.

The products are capable of handling higher levels of current in less space than industry-standard devices. The SMA-packaged rectifier can handle 2A or 3A, versus the industry-standard value of 1A. The SMB- and SMC-packaged Schottky rectifiers can handle 4A and 5A, respectively, versus industry-standard values of 2A and 3A.

The three package outline options available are the DO-214AC (SMA), DO-214AA (SMB) and DO-214AB (SMC). The rectifiers are rated for a maximum operating junction temperature of 150C, as well as for 25kV ESD capability.
