IXYS Introduces 800V Half Bridge Rectifier in a Very Small SMD Package
BIEL, Switzerland --(Business Wire)--
IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ: IXYS), a leader in power semiconductors and
integrated circuit technologies for power management, announced today
the availability of a new diode phase-leg in a DPak housing (TO-252) for
high efficiency AC to DC rectification application with proven
ruggedness and high surge current capabilities.
"Our proven rectifier integration technology enables us to create this
800V phase-leg in a small SMD DPak with 60A of surge current rating at
175C. This DPak as a phase-leg, is a standard building block in power
supplies, UPSs and inverters to create single phase, three phase or
other multiphase rectifying bridges. For example, it enables designers
of a 1kW electronic inverter to develop a very compact and competitive
SMD rectification circuit with low profile, with full flexibility with
standard PCB manufacturing processes," commented Jeroen van Zeeland,
Head of Marketing of IXYS Semiconductor, GmbH in Germany.
The DLA5P800UC is an example of such standard rectifier with an average
forward current of 5 Amperes and a Voltage of 800V. The maximum forward
surge current is specified on 76 Amperes. This product family will be
expanded nd will have a Voltage range up to 1200 Volts in the near
IXYS targets to reduce the energy consumption and to contribute to the
inverterization of electrical motor drives. The Micro Inverter Segment
in the Industrial and Renewable Markets is demanding power semiconductor
solutions which supply more productivity. The DLA5P800UC shows the
needed design simplifications.
The delivery form is in Tape and Reel. The Tape and Reel option enables
automated Pick and Place mounting of these Surface Mountable Device
(SMD) Rectifier Bridge.
