Switching diodes provide the same functionality as an electrical or mechanical switch. They are a single p-n diode in a discrete package.
When selecting Switching Diodes there are some important parameters to be considered, Maximum Reverse Recovery Time (trr), Average Rectified Current (IO), Forward Surge Current (IFSM) and Peak Repetitive Reverse Voltage (VRRM) are the most common.
Switching Diodes are used in high speed switch circuits, reverse polarity protection circuits and rectifying applications.
- Average rectified current range from 150mA to 160mA
- Peak repetitive reverse voltage range from 75V to 100V
- Peak forward surge current range from 1.0A to 2.5A
- Reverse recovery time range from 4.0ns to 3,000ns
