Mon, 04/09/2012 - 2:25pm


Vishay Intertechnology today released a new high-voltage, ultrafast surface-mount avalanche rectifier in the plastic DO-214AC package. The BYG23T combines a low 1.98 mm profile with extremely high reverse voltage of 1,300 V and fast 75 ns reverse recovery time. 


The rectifier released today is optimized for high-voltage, high-frequency rectification in switchmode power supplies (SMPS), HID ignition drives, and industrial ballasts. The BYG23T features low typical reverse current of 2.9 μA at + 125 °C, 5 mJ pulse energy in avalanche mode, forward current of 1.0 A, and forward voltage of 1.39 V at 1 A and + 125 °C.


Ideal for automated placement, the BYG23T offers a rugged maximum operating junction temperature of + 150 °C and an MSL moisture sensitivity level of 1, per J-STD-020, LF maximum peak of + 260 °C. The device is compliant to RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and it is halogen-free according to IEC 61249-2-21.


Samples and production quantities of the BYG23T are available now. Pricing for U.S. delivery is $15 per 100 pieces. Follow rectifiers from Vishay at
