Rectifier Diodes Achieve High-Accuracy Temperature Detection in Real-Time

Rectifier Diodes Achieve High-Accuracy Temperature Detection in Real-Time
Allegro MicroSystems

Enlisting a Schottky barrier diode (SBD) for temperature detection, the FMKS series fast-recovery rectifier diodes are viable candidates for thermal protection of switching power supplies. Sporting a 200V reverse voltage, the device with an SBD is formed on the same die. This makes it possible to detect overheating caused by overcurrent (temperature increase of built-in FRD). The FMKS series is available in a TO-220F full-mold package.
