AVX Introduces Lead-less Schottky Rectifier Diodes for Switching Power Supply Applications

AVX Corporation has announced a new series of Schottky barrier rectifier diodes uniquely packaged as lead-less chips. The new lead-less diodes’ top-bottom symmetry enables better heat transfer and current handling than SOD devices, as well as fewer mounting problems.

 

These diodes are available in several case sizes and range in current values from 0.1A to 8A and are ideal for switch mode power supplies, high frequency rectification, portable battery power devices, and reverse bias protection applications.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part Two

Maxwell’s Equations are eloquently simple yet excruciatingly complex. Their first statement by James Clerk Maxwell in 1864 heralded the beginning of the age of radio and, one could argue, the age of modern electronics.

AVX’s low power loss, high efficiency Schottky rectifier diodes are lead-free, halogen-free, and RoHS compliant.  Housed in cases composed of FRP substrates with epoxy underfill, a UL 94V-0 class package material, the diodes are available in 0603, 0805, 1206, 2010, 2114, and 3220 cases sizes and in both standard and thin thicknesses.  Mechanically robust, the new Schottky diodes are also available in a range of voltages, spanning 20V to 200V, and in both standard and low Vf.  The diodes’ terminations are 100% tin-plated and are solderable per MIL-STD-750, method 2026.
