Toshiba Corp. is set to expand its portfolio of 650V silicon carbide (SiC) schottky barrier diodes (SBD) with the introduction of insulated TO-220F-2L package products. The four products extend the 6A, 8A, 10A and 12A line-up from the existing TO-220-2L package products.

SBDs are suited for applications including server power supplies and power conditioners for photovoltaic power generation systems. SBDs can also act as replacements for silicon diodes in switching power supplies, where they are 50 per cent more efficient, according to a Toshiba survey.

SiC power devices offer more stable operation than current silicon devices, even at high voltages and currents, as they significantly reduce heat dissipation during operation, the company added. They meet diverse industry needs for smaller, more effective communications devices and suit industrial applications ranging from servers to inverters.
