Advantages of SUNMATE low voltage drop Schottky diode
With the development of the times and the enhancement of people's awareness of energy conservation and environmental protection, the requirements for external power supply are higher and higher. More and more people have used low-voltage drop Schottky diodes to replace ordinary Schottky diodes. Therefore, the use of low-voltage drop Schottky diodes will be more and more widely, and the original ordinary Schottky diodes will be replaced slowly
Low voltage drop Schottky diode is a diode with the advantages of high switching frequency and low forward voltage. Its reverse recovery time can be as small as a few nanoseconds, and the forward conduction voltage drop is about 0.4 ~ 0.6V. However, the rectifier current of this diode can reach several kiloamps, so it is suitable to work under the conditions of low voltage and high current.
For example, the output rectifier diode of computer host power supply adopts low-voltage drop Schottky diode, because the frequency of switching power supply is very high, and if ordinary diode is used during rectification, the diode loss will increase and heat, and may even not work at all. The reverse recovery time of Schottky diode is short, the speed is fast, and the forward conduction voltage drop is also small, so it is often used for switching power supply rectification.
