Promising to enhance efficiency, reliability, and thermal management in power electronics applications, Littelfuse adds two 650V, AEC-Q101-qualified silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky Diodes to its power portfolio. Both series offer a variety of performance advantages over traditional silicon-based devices, including negligible reverse recovery current, high surge capability, and a maximum operating junction temperature of 175°C. This makes them viable for applications in which improved efficiency, reliability, and thermal management are desirable.
The LSIC2SD065DxxA Series SiC Schottky Diode is available with current ratings of 6A, 10A, or 16A in a TO‑263-2L package and the LSIC2SD065ExxCCA Series SiC Schottky Diode is available with current ratings of 12A, 16A, 20A, or 40A in a TO-247-3L package. Typical applications for the new 650V SiC Schottky Diodes include:
- Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations
- Buck/boost stages in DC-DC converters
- Free-wheeling diodes in inverter stages
- High-frequency output rectification
- Power factor correction (PFC)
LSIC2SD065DxxA Series SiC Schottky Diodes are available in TO-263-2L packaging and LSIC2SD065ExxCCA Series SiC Schottky Diodes are available in TO-247-3L packaging. Both in tape and reel format, with a minimum order quantity of 800 devices. For more details, absorb the LSIC2SD065DxxA datasheet and the LSIC2SD065ExxCCA datasheet.
