America Semiconductor, LLC, a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-industry high-power semiconductors, introduced the new series of standard-recovery, stud-mount rectifiers in DO8 and DO9 packages. Used to convert raw alternating current (AC) mains’ electricity into direct current (DC) power, the robust devices are hermetically sealed to ensure reliable and consistent performance in humid and various harsh environment applications. Their quality construction and engineering ensures uniform and stable electrical performance while eliminating thermal fatigue. Products are supplied in current ratings from 150A to 400A, and in voltages from 50V to 2000V at 125 °C case temperature.
America Semiconductor’s new rectifiers are ideally suited for employment in a wide range of commercial, industrial and military applications. They are commonly specified for use in DC motors and motor controls, battery chargers, ultrasonics, RF and inductive systems, inverters, welders, and emergency generators.
The stud-mount rectifiers are offered with US and European threads in standard (anode-to-case) and reverse (cathode-to-case) polarity. They notably feature low forward voltage drop, low reverse leakage currents, high surge current ratings, and high I2t. The rectifiers feature superior power cycling performance along with the ability to maintain stable forward voltage characteristics throughout component lifetime. Operating temperature range is -40 to +200 °C.
