Schottky Diodes Boost Performance Of Power Conversion Applications

The company’s family of seven, 1200V Z-Rec silicon carbide Schottky diodes are optimized for price and performance. The diodes feature zero reverse recovery, resulting in up to a 50% reduction in switching losses versus comparable silicon diodes. They also exhibit consistent switching performance across their entire temperature range. These devices are suitable for use as boost diodes and anti-parallel diodes in solar inverters and three-phase motor drive circuits as well as in PFC boost circuits in power supplies and UPS equipment. They can also be used in applications where users typically parallel many devices to address higher power requirements. CREE INC., Durham, NC. (919) 313-5300.
