Fast Recovery Diodes are an essential complement to any switching device and are more often than not the limiting factor in the design and performance of modern power converters. To address the needs of our customers, we have developed an unparalleled range of Fast Recovery Diodes. These diodes are available with blocking voltages up to 6 kV making them suitable for operation with DC link voltages up to 3.3 kV and average current ratings to 4 kA depending upon type. The devices utilise compression bonding along with both alloyed and floating silicon technologies to deliver robust devices that you can rely on in demanding applications. This range has been re-classified as follows to aid appropriate device selection; Fast Recovery, Soft Recovery, Extra Fast Recovery Diodes and HP Sonic-FRDs.
Fast Recovery Diodes: These parts are particularly suitable for use as anti-parallel diodes in Gate Turn-Off thyristors and Fast Thyristor inverters, diodes for choppers.
