Littelfuse has launched silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky diodes with improved efficiency, reliability and thermal management. The GEN2 series of diodes have an operating junction temperature of +175°C (maximum). Other features include high surge capability and negligible reverse recovery current. Their switching behavior is extremely fast and temperature independent.
These diodes have been designed for use in electric vehicle charging stations, solar inverters and switch mode power supplies (SMPS).
