Software Recovery Diodes
A diode's performance in a switch mode power supply is characterized by switching times. Stealth technology combines fast recovery ( Stealth diodes can be used as a boost diode in power factor correction circuits, and as a free wheeling diode in uninterruptible power supplies, motor drives and SMPS. These applications frequently require a pair of diodes having a common cathode configuration. Forward current ratings of 8 × 2 amp, 15 × 2 amp or 30 × 2 amp with common cathode connection are available in TO-220A and TO-247 packages with a maximum junction temperature up to 175°C.
