New Qspeed 150 V Diodes from Power Integrations Deliver Winning Combination of Switching Speed and Softness

March 16th, 2015

Power Integrations today announced a new family of Qspeed™ 150 V diodes. The fastest silicon diodes in the world, Qspeed LQA150 series devices also feature excellent softness for low EMI. Based on the company’s Qspeed merged-PIN technology, the diodes have the lowest junction capacitance (CJ) and lowest reverse recovery charge (QRR) in the market – respectively 60% and 40% lower than trench Schottky devices.

Comments Klaus Pietrczak, product marketing director at Power Integrations: "Our tests show that these devices are the fastest switching silicon diodes in the market with the lowest switching losses. They exceed the performance of the best trench Schottky diodes by at least a factor of two, which is particularly beneficial for applications with high switching frequencies."
