SemiSouth Laboratories launched new 1200V/5A silicon carbide (SiC)diodes in the true, compact DPAK (TO-252) surface mount packaging which provides the necessary creepage distance and does not require a center pin.

The new SDB05S120 parts feature a positive temperature coefficient for ease of paralleling. Switching behavior is independent of temperature and the devices have a maximum operating temperature of 175degC. The new diodes also have a zero reverse recovery current and voltage. They have a footprint of 0.385 x 0.260in and a profile of 0.090in.

The major application for these new SiC diodes lies in photo-voltaic micro-inverters, but the devices are also highly suitable for use in SMPS, Power Factor Correction circuits, induction heaters, UPS and motor drives.
