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 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.
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.
Gigantic streams of data constantly flow through the Internet. On YouTube alone, 48 hours of video material are uploaded every minute. And every day, a thousand times more data than is currently contained in all printed books races through the Internet. And so it is no surprise that the amount of energy needed to power the Internet is increasing steadily.
