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: Cd ≤ 2 pF
  • Low leakage current
  • Reverse voltage: VR ≤ 90 V
  • Small SMD plastic packages
  • AEC-Q101 qualified

Target applications

  • High-speed switching
  • General-purpose switching
