Power Semiconductor Standard Recovery Diode and Rectifier units usually include one or two diodes/rectifiers in different configurations. Desired features of these diodes/rectifiers can include low forward voltage, low thermal impedance, and both excellent surge and i2t* current ratings.
Applications for Standard Recovery Diodes and Rectifiers include power supplies, motor control circuits, battery chargers, resistance welding circuits, or as a free-wheeling diode.
Specific attributes which are important in selecting the right Standard Recovery Diode/Rectifier for your application include: Voltage Rating (V); Current Rating (A); and Package Type. We feature a wide range of package types, such as a module, a stud (both forward and reverse polarity types), and a hockey puk (also called “disc”).
Richardson RFPD maintains a robust selection of Standard Recovery Diodes and Rectifiers from Dynex, Electronic Devices, Microsemi, Powerex, Semikron and our own brand.
* The “I” in the “I2t” rating is the RMS value of the surge current (while by contrast, “I” is a peak value in the surge current rating). The I2t rating is useful in coordinating the right fuse to protect the diode.
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’.
