High-speed switching diodes

High-speed switching diodes, encapsulated in small Surface-Mounted Device (SMD) plastic packages.


  • High switching speed: trr ≤ 4 ns
  • Low capacitance
  • Low leakage current
  • Reverse voltage: VR ≤ 100 V
  • Repetitive peak reverse voltage: VRRM ≤ 100 V
  • Small SMD plastic packages
  • AEC-Q101 qualified

Target applications

  • High-speed switching
  • General-purpose switching
