Silicon Germanium Rectifiers

Design efficiency and safety through fast switching and extraordinary safe operation area


  • Excellent Efficiency
  • Extraordinary Safe Operation Area (SOA)
  • Minimal impact on EMC allowing simplified certification
  • Thermal stability up to 175 °C Tj

Nexperia's SiGe rectifiers combine the high efficiency of Schottky rectifiers with the thermal stability of fast recovery diodes. Targeting automotive, server markets, and communications infrastructure, the AEC-Q101 compliant rectifiers are of particular benefit in high-temperature applications. These extremely low leakage devices allow an extended safe-operating area with no thermal runaway up to 175 °C, while , at the same time, offer significant room to optimize design towards higher efficiency. SiGe rectifiers are housed in the clip-bonded FlatPower (CFP) packages CFP-3 and CFP-5.
