Vishay Intertechnology delivers Fred Pt rectifiers in TO-244 package

Four new Fred Pt Gen 5 600V fast rectifiers are available in the TO-244 package from Vishay Intertechnology. They are claimed to offer the best conduction and switching loss trade-off for devices in their class.

The 240, 300, 480 and 600A Vishay Semiconductors’ rectifiers are designed to increase the efficiency of medium frequency power converters and of hard- and soft-switched or resonant designs. 

They offer lower conduction, compared to competing Fred Pt devices in the TO-244 package, claimed Vishay, while maintaining low reverse recovery losses. This results in improved efficiency for industrial applications, such as high frequency welding and ballast water management systems. 

The VS-VS5HD240CW60, VS-VS5HD300CW60, VS-VS5HD480CW60 and VS-VS5HD600CW60 offer low Qrr down to 260nC typical, with fast recovery time down to 52 nanoseconds and an operating temperature range up to +175 degrees C.

Samples of the new Fred Pt rectifiers are available now. Production quantities are available with lead times of 40 weeks. 

Vishay claims to manufacture one of the world’s largest portfolios of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components for designs in the automotive, industrial, computing, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace and medical markets.
