Cree Inc. rolled out a commercial 1200V surface mount SiC Schottky diode.
Packaged in an industry-standard surface mount TO-252 D-Pak, the C2D05120E Schottky diodes deliver the same performance as Cree's TO-220 through-hole devices, with a smaller board footprint and lower profile. This can enable the design of smaller, lower cost, and more efficient solar power micro-inverters, compared to systems designed with larger and bulkier through-hole parts.
Rated for 5A and 1200V
Board mounted dimensions: 6.6mm wide x 9.9mm long x 2.3mm high
Operating junction and storage temperature: rated for -55°C to +175°C
