    Silicon Germanium Rectifiers: novel diode technology with enhanced safe operating area for high frequency converter applications Reza Behtash & Ali Aneissi

    Silicon Germanium rectifiers combine the high efficiency of Schottky rectifiers with the thermal stability of fast recovery diodes. We discuss the novel diode technology and its technical advantages. Also, we review results of a 48V/12V-DC-DC high-frequency converter that utilizes these Silicon Germanium rectifiers.
