Rectifier Improves Continuous-Current PFC apps
With an 11-ns Reverse Recovery Time and a Forward Voltage Drop of 2.1 V, the 8S2TH06I-M FRED Pt 600-V Hyperfast tandem rectifier from Vishay reduces losses in high-efficiency continuous current mode (CCM) power factor correction (PFC) applications by as much as 22 %. The 2-pin ceramic-insulated TO-220-packaged device provides 8 A DC at a 120 °C case temperature (thermal resistance of 2.3 °C/W junction to case) with an insulation exceeding 2 kV. The reverse-recovery charge is 7 nC at 25°C and 35 nC at 125°C. From $0.65.
