Linden, N.J. – America Semiconductor, LLC has developed a series of high-power standard recovery rectifiers in a DO4 package. Offered in stud cathode and stud anode versions, the parts are available with current ratings ranging from 6 A to 25 A. The high-reliability components are hermetically sealed to ensure robust and dependable performance in harsh and humid environments. The rectifiers are offered with peak repetitive reverse voltages ranging from 100 V to 1200 V at 125 °C case temperature.
The DO4 stud devices are used in a variety of industrial applications to convert raw alternating current (AC) mains' electricity into direct current (DC) power. They are suited for use in applications where superior power cycling performance and the ability to maintain stable forward voltage characteristics throughout components' lifetime is required. They also are commonly specified for use in battery chargers, converters, power supplies, machine tool controls and in welding equipment, said the company.
The high-power standard recovery rectifiers are supplied with U.S. and European threads, and may be ordered in 6-A, 12-A, 16-A and 25-A versions with maximum average forward currents ranging from 160 °C to 120 °C. Other specifications include a high I2t, an operating junction temperature range of -65 °C to 175 °C and an operating storage junction temperature range of -65 °C to 200 °C. The series' non-repetitive peak surge current range is from 167A to 373A.
