Vishay Intertechnology Launches New AEC-Q101 Qualified High Voltage Thyristors and Diodes

Share:

MALVERN, Pa., May 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today introduced 37 new high voltage thyristors and diodes for automotive applications. Qualified to AEC-Q101, the Vishay Semiconductors devices offer repetitive voltages from 600 V to 1600 V and wide current ranges in three package options.

The devices released today are available in surface-mount DPAK (TO-252AA) and D²PAK (TO-263AB) packages and in the through-hole TO-247AD. The nine new thyristors deliver continuous RMS on-state current from 12 A to 79 A, while the 28 standard and fast recovery diodes offer forward current from 8 A to 65 A. All devices provide up to 1000 V/µs immunity.

The thyristors and diodes are designed for use in the 50 Hz / 60 Hz AC line rectification stage for on-board battery chargers in electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), where they supply a full range of charging power from 3 kW to over 30 kW. For inrush current limiting, the thyristors enable soft start functionality without the use of resistors and bulky mechanical relays.

Device Specification Table:

Thyristors Package IRMS (A) VRRM/VDRM (V) Configuration
D²PAK (TO-263AB) 12 to 25 800 to 1600 Single
TO-247AD 30 to 79 1200 to 1600
Diodes Package IF(AV) (A) VRRM (V) Configuration
DPAK (TO-252AA) 8 600 to 1600 Single; Fast recovery; standard recovery
D²PAK (TO-263AB) 10 to 25 600 to 1200
TO-247AD 35 to 65 600 to 1600

Samples and production quantities of the new thyristors and diodes are available now, with lead times of 12 to 14 weeks.
