650V Rapid Diode for Industrial Applications








With the introduction of Rapid Diodes, Infineon Technologies enters the hyperfast fast high voltage silicon diode market. Based on ultrathin wafer technology, two families are released to cover different application requirements. Rapid 1 is used in low switching applications (up to 40 kHz) whilst the Rapid 2 is used in fast switching applications (up to 100 kHz).

This application note was designed to show how the Rapid diode will improve the existing system solution for its targeted applications in terms of efficiency and soft reverse recovery behavior. The Rapid diode portfolio can also be found at the end of this application note.
