Dual, High-Voltage Schottky Rectifier

The first Schottky barrier rectifiers based on Trench MOS technology can be used in rectification circuits or as OR-ing diodes in redundant switchmode power supplies.

The five devices feature low forward voltage drops and can match the efficiency and thermal performance of synchronous rectification circuits. This means they can use smaller heat sinks. They operate over a 20 to 150°C junction temperature range.
