Cree Launches Surface Mount 1200V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode

Thu, 03/03/2011 - 9:03am
DURHAM, N.C. -- Cree, Inc. announces the availability of the industry's first commercial 1200V surface mount SiC Schottky diode. Packaged in an industry-standard surface mount TO-252 D-Pak, the Schottky diodes deliver the same proven performance as Cree's TO-220 through-hole devices, with a smaller board footprint and lower profile. This can enable the design of smaller, lower cost, and more efficient solar power micro-inverters, compared to systems designed with larger and bulkier through-hole parts.

Cree C2D05120E Schottky diodes are rated for 5A and 1200V, with approximate board mounted dimensions of 6.6mm wide x 9.9mm long x 2.3mm high. Operating junction and storage temperature is rated for -55°C to +175°C.

The C2D05120E surface mount Schottky diodes are fully qualified and released for production use. For samples and more information about Cree's SiC power devices, please visit
