Cree, Inc. has introduced a series of packaged diodes that deliver the industry's highest blocking voltage available in SiC Schottky technology. Cree's 1700V Z-Rec® Schottky diodes virtually eliminate the reverse recovery losses suffered in silicon PiN diode alternatives, enabling ultra-efficient, smaller and lighter systems-all with improved reliability. These newly released packaged products extend the performance improvements and system cost savings enabled by Z-Rec technology at 1700V to lower-power applications designed with discrete components.
While the 1700V bare die have been available for customers who design their own custom power modules, the new TO-247-2 packages allow customers to take advantage of SiC for lower-power 1700V designs, enable more design flexibility in choosing current levels, and support a faster time to market.
Designated the C3Dxx170H Series, the new Cree SiC Schottky diodes are rated for 10A/1700V and 25A/1700V and are available in an industry standard TO-247-2 package. Operating junction temperature is rated for -55°C to +175°C. .
