Cree Inc.’s latest addition to its 1200V SiC Schottky diode product offering includes four new surface mount devices in 2A, 5A, 8A, and 10A current ratings, and packaged in the surface mount TO-252 D-Pak. The new offerings are meant to give designers of systems, such as solar micro inverters, more options to develop smaller, lighter power conversion circuits.
According to the company, the new surface mount devices deliver the same proven performance as Cree’s TO-220 Schottky diodes, but with a smaller PCB footprint and lower profile.
Cree’s C4D02120E Series Schottky diodes are rated for 2A/1200V; the C4D05120E Series diodes are rated for 5A/1200V; the C4D08120E Series diodes are rated for 8A/1200V; and the C4D10120E Series diodes are rated for 10A/1200V. Operating junction temperature for all C4DXX120E devices is rated for -55 °C to +175 °C.
The C4DXX120E surface mount Schottky diodes are fully qualified and released for production use, according to the company.
