Vishay Semiconductor’s high voltage input rectifiers for automotive applications are surface mount diodes that are optimized for very low forward voltage drop with moderate leakage. These components are to be used in the 50Hz/60Hz AC line rectification stage. Constructed with a glass passivated pellet chip junction, they are AEC-Q101 qualified and RoHS compliant. The rectifiers feature high surge, low VF rugged blocking diode for DC charging stations and provide a flexible solution for reliable AC power rectification. Applications include electric vehicles (EV)/hybrid-electric-vehicle (HEV) battery chargers and renewable energy inverters.
