MALVERN, Pa., Oct. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced four new FRED Pt® Gen 5 600V Hyperfast Rectifiers in a fully isolated TO-220 FullPAK 2L package. The 12A VS-E5TW1206FP-N3 and VS-E5TX1206FP-N3 and 15A VS-E5TW1506FP-N3 and VS-E5TX1506FP-N3 offer best-in-class reverse recovery performance for devices and are designed to maximize efficiency of mid-frequency converters and of hard- and soft-switched or resonant designs.

Compared to previous-generation solutions, Vishay Semiconductors’ devices introduced today reduce reverse recovery charge (Qrr) by 60%, resulting in 90% lower recovery losses. In addition, the rectifiers offer a 10 percent improvement in recovered energy (Erec) compared to the closest competing device, a smoother recovery flag for improved EMI reduction, and more stable operation over their entire operating temperature range for improved thermal performance.

With the latest member of its family of Gen 5 600V FRED Pt rectifiers, Vishay extends the benefits of high-end Si technology to various circuit topologies, including classic and bridgeless Power Factor Correction (PFC) front-end configurations. The devices serve as output and PFC rectifiers for AC/DC and DC/DC power stages in industrial applications – including air conditioning, off-board chargers, lighting, hybrid solar inverters and UPS – where they guarantee system reliability and robustness performance compromises.

The VS-E5TW1206FP-N3, VS-E5TX1206FP-N3, VS-E5TW1506FP-N3 and VS-E5TX1506FP-N3 models are available in X-Type and W-Type speed classes. For CCM and resonant applications with higher switching frequencies up to 100kHz and low di/dt up to 350kHz, W-type devices deliver lower Qrr while X-type rectifiers offer lower forward voltage. The RoHS-compliant and halogen-free rectifiers offer high-temperature operation up to +175 °C and an isolation voltage of 2500 V.
