Super Barrier Rectifier from Diodes Incorporated Helps Reduce Charger Size

  Super Barrier Rectifier from Diodes Incorporated Helps Reduce Charger Size

Business Wire

PLANO, Texas -- May 2, 2013

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier
of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad
discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today introduced the
15A-rated SBR15U50SP5 Super Barrier Rectifier (SBR^®) to meet the needs of
next-generation smartphone and tablet chargers. Characterized by low forward
voltage and low reverse leakage, this miniature SBR has been designed to
tolerate the higher current pulses and operating temperatures of low-profile,
discontinuous mode flyback charger designs.

Presenting a forward voltage of just 0.35 V for a current of 10A at an ambient
temperature of +90ºC, the SBR15U50SP5 ensures conduction losses are minimized,
thereby increasing charger efficiency. Its low reverse leakage at higher
temperatures means that blocking mode losses are also reduced, removing the
risk of thermal runaway and raising reliability.

The SBR’s electrical performance, combined with the low thermal resistance of
the compact PowerDI^®-5 package, means that heat transfer is optimized,
enabling much smaller, thinner charger designs to be achieved. Diodes’
proprietary PowerDI-5 package occupies a maximum footprint of only 4.05mm x
6.60mm and has an off-board profile of just 1.15mm. For further information,
