A dual high-voltage, high-current Schottky rectifier from Vishay Intertechnology (distributed by Ecomal) combines 100V reverse voltage and 60 A forward current capabilities in the TO 220AB package.
Offering twice the current handling of typical 100V Schottky rectifiers in the TO 220AB, the MBR60100CT is intended for secondary rectification of ac-to-dc and dc-to-dc converters and for freewheeling and polarity protection in power supplies for desktop and notebook PCs, servers, telecommunications exchanges, HDTV equipment, and other systems incorporating high-power switchmode power supplies.
With 60 A forward current capability and a high 100 V reverse voltage, the new Schottky rectifier is optimized for 100 W to 300 W power supply applications. The device also features a very low typical forward voltage of 0.64 V, low maximum reverse leakage current of 20 mA, and typical leakage current of just 8.5mA - much lower than the 11mA offered by the next-best competing device. Together, these very low industry-leading values combine to reduce power loss in end systems.
Other key electrical specifications for the MBR60100CT Schottky rectifier include a high forward surge current of 350A, a large peak non-repetitive reverse surge energy per leg of 25 mJ (S/20 µs), high avalanche energy capability of 20 mJ per leg (minimum at 40 mH), and a high-voltage rate of change of 10.000 V/µs. The maximum operating junction temperature is 175 °C.
