Vishay – Low Profile Rectifiers Provide for Higher Density Power-System Designs

Vishay’s latest FRED Pt Hyperfast and Ultrafast recovery rectifiers average forward current ratings ranging from 10A to 30A, and housed in a low profile SMPD (TO-263AC) package.

The devices’ SMPD package is footprint compatible with the TO-263 (D2PAK) package, but has a lower height of <1.7mm, enabling users to achieve increased power density and efficiency, and to realize end products with a slimmer form factor.

The rectifiers feature a planar structure and platinum-doped lifetime control to guarantee high overall performance, ruggedness and reliability.
