STMicroelectronics recently announced a new high-voltage Schottky diode that will help increase the energy efficiency and ruggedness of equipment such as telecom base stations and welding equipment.
Designated STPS60SM200C, ST's new 200V power Schottky rectifier diode will be used in high-current AC/DC power supplies delivering nominal DC output voltages in the 30-50V range. Its 200V maximum reverse voltage is compatible with known worst-case operating conditions and provides the design margins needed to withstand over-voltages and remain fully operational down to -40°C, making it suitable for telecom base station sites anywhere in the world.
The STPS60SM200C integrates two interconnected diodes in a three-pin package to provide a more energy efficient alternative to ultra-fast diodes, which typically have higher conduction losses. Using ST proprietary process technology, the STPS60SM200C achieves over 2kV ESD-protection, which is higher than comparable Schottky devices when tested according to IEC 61000-4-2, according to ST.
