The Silicon Power Rapid Diode family complements Infineon’s existing high power 600V/650V diode portfolio by filling the gap between SiC diodes and previously released emitter-controlled diodes. They represent a perfect cost/performance balance and target high efficiency applications switching between 18kHz and 100kHz. Rapid 1 and Rapid 2 diodes are optimized to have excellent compatibility with CoolMOS™ and high speed IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) such as the TRENCHSTOP™ 5 and HighSpeed 3.

Infineon's New 650V Rapid Diode Families

Infineon's New 650V Rapid Diode Families

Infineon’s new Rapid 1 and 2 power silicon diodes complement the existing high power 600V/650V diodes, filling the gap between the SiC diodes and emitter-controlled diodes. The new hyper- and ultra-fast diode families offer outstanding efficiency and reliability and perfectly balance cost and performance. The additional 50V provide higher reliability without efficiency being penalized.

Infineon's New 650V Rapid 1 Diode

Infineon's New 650V Rapid 1 Diode

Infineon`s Rapid 1 diode family, with 1.35V temperature-stable forward voltage (V F), ensures the lowest conduction losses and by means of soft recovery keeps EMI emissions to a minimum. They are perfectly suited for Power Factor Correction (PFC) topologies, typically found in major home appliances, like air conditioners and washing machines, as well as boost stages in photovoltaic inverters.

Infineon's New 650V Rapid 2 Diode

Infineon's New 650V Rapid 2 Diode

The Rapid 2 diode family is designed for applications switching between 40 kHz and 100 kHz by offering low reverse recovery charge (Q rr) and time (t rr) to minimize the reverse conduction times attributed to the power switch turn-on losses and thus providing maximum efficiency.
