Power Semiconductor Fast Recovery Diode and Rectifier units usually include one or two diodes/rectifiers in different configurations. Desired features of these diodes/rectifiers can include fast recovery times, soft recovery characteristics, low thermal impedance, and a high surge current rating.
Applications for Fast Recovery Diodes and Rectifiers include inverters, buck- and boost-choppers, high-powered transmitters, or as a free-wheeling diode.
Specific attributes which are important in selecting the right Fast Recovery Diode/Rectifier for your application include: Voltage Rating (V); Current Rating (A); Recovery Time (nS); and Package Type. Our Fast Recovery Diodes and Rectifiers feature a wide range of package types, such as axial leaded, module, stud (both forward and reverse polarity types), and hockey puk (also called “disc”).
Richardson RFPD maintains a robust selection of Fast Recovery Diodes and Rectifiers from Dynex, Electronic Devices, Powerex, Semikron and our own brand.
The parametric search filter allows the user to quickly find the parts they need by filtering the results in real-time.
Additionally, some attributes allow for the conversion of their base type to different types. For example, the attribute group for minimum frequency is shown in MHz. The values can be converted to be shown in KHz or GHz by selecting the conversion type from the ‘Select Conversion’ drop down list.
Any Attribute that does not interest the user can be hidden by clicking on the ‘X” in the upper-right corner of the attribute. To show any hidden attributes, simply click the ‘Unhide Attributes’ button in the bottom of the parametric search filter.
If you are experiencing performance issues, please use a newer browser such as Chrome or Firefox, or disable the ability of the filter to perform dynamic updates by deselecting the checkbox titled ‘Allow Filters to Dynamically Update Parametric Search Attributes’.
