SemiSouth Laboratories, a leading manufacturer of silicon carbide (SiC) transistor technology for high-power, high-efficiency, harsh-environment power management and conversion applications, launched its SDP60S120D 1200V, 60A SiC power Schottky diode, which is presented as delivering the highest continuous forward current (IF ) of any SiC diode in the world (measured @ Tc of 145ºC).
Delivering 20% more current than its nearest competitor the TO-247-packaged SDP60S120D has a Qc of only 260nC and an operating temperature range -55 to 175degC. Featuring a positive temperature coefficient for ease of paralleling and temperature-independent switching behaviour, the new Schottky diode also exhibits a zero reverse recovery current and zero forward recovery voltage
Comments Dieter Liesabeths, Director of Sales: “Our new 60A SDP60S120D enables uses to replace three paralleled 20A parts reducing power dissipation by over 12% as well as saving space and cost.”
Applications include solar inverters, motor drives, power factor correction, UPS, AMPS and induction heating. SemiSouth products are available through a global distribution network of several high-quality reps/distributors, listed at (http://www.semisouth.com/contact/salesreps-distributors.html  ).
