Vishay Intertechnology has introduced four new FRED Pt Gen 5 600 V Ultrafast rectifiers in the TO-244 package.
Offering the ideal conduction and switching loss trade-off for devices in their class, the 240 A, 300 A, 480 A, and 600 A Vishay Semiconductors rectifiers are designed to increase the efficiency of medium frequency power converters and of hard and soft-switched or resonant designs.
Compared to competing FRED Pt Ultrafast solutions in the TO-244 package, the new devices offer lower conduction, while maintaining low reverse recovery losses.
The result is improved efficiency for industrial applications, such as high-frequency welding and ballast water management systems.
Delivering high speed, high temperature operation for these applications, the VS-VS5HD240CW60, VS-VS5HD300CW60, VS-VS5HD480CW60, and VS-VS5HD600CW60 offer low Qrr down to 260 nC typical, fast recovery time down to 52 ns, and an operating temperature range up to +175° C.
