Digikey recently announced an agreement with GeneSiC Semiconductor to serve as the company's exclusive distributor for its latest low-capacitance silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky rectifiers. The rectifiers are specifically targeted towards voltage multiplier circuits and high voltage assemblies used in a wide range of x-ray, laser, and particle generator power supplies.

GeneSiC's 3300 V/0.3 A Schottky rectifiers feature zero reverse recovery current that does not change with temperature. This relatively high voltage in a single device allows a reduction in voltage multiplication stages required in typical high voltage generator circuits, through use of higher AC input voltages. The near-ideal switching characteristics allow the elimination/dramatic reduction of voltage balancing networks and snubber circuits.

All devices are tested to full voltage/current ratings and housed in halogen-free, RoHS-compliant, industry-standard TO-220FP (Full Pack) packages.
