Operates up to 175CAdvanced Power Technology (APTI) disclosed that both its D and DQ family of FREDs can be reliably operated up to 175C junction temperature. According to the company, key benefits of these FREDs are improved temperature margin and reliability at the same power level, and increased RMS current capability at elevated junction temperatures. In addition, APTI said, these devices provide low leakage for low static losses and be thermally stable, and platinum doping for improved reliability at high temperature.

Target applications include switch mode power supplies, alternative energy inverters, motor drives and other industrial applications. These diodes can also be used as snubber diodes, hard-switched PFC boost diodes and free-wheeling diodes.

The FREDs are also available in RoHS-compliant form by adding a "G" to the end of the part number.
