Industry first for Diodes' 2A rectifiers


Ultra-thin chip-scale -packaged devices are the smallest in their class

Diodes Incorporated has announced that its new SDT2U30CP3 (30V/2A), SDT2U40CP3 (40V/2A), and SDT2U60CP3 (60V/2A) trench Schottky rectifiers achieve the industry’s highest current densities in their class.

The Schottky rectifiers are housed in a chip-scale package (CSP) that occupies 0.84mm² board space. They can be employed for a variety of different purposes, serving as blocking or reverse-polarity protection diodes, boost diodes, and switching diodes.

The trio of devices are believed to be the first ever 2A trench Schottky rectifiers to be designed into the X3-DSN1406-2 package, making these the industry’s smallest in their class. Compared with similar SMB packaged devices, they take up a mere 3.4 percent of the PCB area. These ultra-thin CSPs, featuring a typical profile of 0.25mm, also shorten thermal paths. This results in enhanced power dissipation, ultimately reducing thermal bill-of-materials costs and significantly increasing overall system reliability.

Low forward voltage performance, typically 480mV (580mV for the SDT2U60CP3), minimises power losses, enabling the design of higher efficiency systems. They have superior avalanche capability compared to other products in the same range, ensuring robustness in extreme operating conditions, such as transient voltages, and providing an extra layer of reliability.

The SDT2U30CP3, SDT2U40CP3, and SDT2U60CP3 rectifiers are available at unit price of $0.16, $0.17, and $0.19 respectively in 2,500 piece quantities.
