MALVERN, PA — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) this week introduced 10 new FRED Pt® Gen 5 600 V Hyperfast and Ultrafast rectifiers. Offering the best reverse recovery performance for devices in their class, the 15 A, 30 A, 60 A, and 75 A Vishay Semiconductors rectifiers are designed to increase the efficiency of AC/DC and DC/DC converters and of hard- and soft-switched or resonant designs.

The devices released today offer 30% lower reverse recovery losses than the closest competing rectifiers and 48% lower than previous-generation FRED Pt solutions while maintaining low conduction and switching losses. The result is improved light- and full-load efficiency in high-speed LLC output rectification stages for EV/HEV battery charging stations and high frequency stages for UPS applications.

The rectifiers are available in TO-220AC and TO-247AD packages and X-type Hyperfast and H-type Ultrafast speed classes. X-type devices offer the advantage of lower QRR, while H-type rectifiers feature lower forward voltage. RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the components offer high-temperature operation to +175°C.
