The new 500V L-Series of HEXFET® power MOSFETs has a fast-recovery body diode for reliable operation of zero-voltage switching (ZVS) power supplies, especially at light loads. Eliminating the need for series Schottky and anti-parallel high-voltage diodes, they exhibit nearly a 70% reduction in reverse recovery time (Trr max), as low as 250 ns. They demonstrate more than 70% reduction in diode reverse recovery charge (Qrr) reducing switching losses, and more than three times better diode peak recovery (dV/dt) immunity compared to standard devices.

Low-Noise Fans

Panther dc fans operate at switching levels above 20 kHz, producing a soft commutation that results in a quiet operation above the audible range for human hearing. The stator motion is a square wave that's switched on and off before and after the peak torque position. It's ideal for PWM and temperature speed control of applications such as PCs, servers, and power supplies.

Flux Density Ferrite

Ferrite material 3C92 is intended for output chokes in power supplies. These carry dc current with a small ac ripple. A high saturation level is required for a high dc current without much inductance loss. The energy storage value of a choke is proportional to the square of peak flux density and determines the core volume required.
