Vishay Intertechnology Releases Four 45 V TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky Rectifiers for Solar Bypass Applications in SMPC and Axial-Leaded Packages
MALVERN, Pa. — Jan. 20, 2011 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today expanded its TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers for solar bypass applications with four new 45 V devices offering eSMP® surface-mount and axial-leaded package options.
The devices released today are designed to enable higher current densities in low-voltage, high-frequency inverters, and solar cell junction boxes, where they will be used as bypass diodes for photovoltaic solar cell protection.
Axial-leaded rectifiers released today include the 15 A VSB1545 and 20 A VSB2045 in the P600 package. The devices can handle solder dip temperatures to 275 °C for 10 seconds per JESD 22-B106, and feature a maximum junction temperature of + 150 °C
The TMBS rectifiers combine their high forward surge capability with low forward voltage drops down to 0.30 V to minimize power losses. The devices are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC, and are halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition.
Samples and production quantities of the new 45 V TMBS rectifiers are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
