July 11, 2024 /SemiMedia/ -- Nexperia recently announced 650V ultra- and hyperfast recovery rectifiers in D2PAK Real-2-Pin (R2P) packaging for use in various automotive, industrial and consumer applications including charging adapters, photovoltaic (PV), inverters, servers and switched mode power supplies (SMPS).

Combining planar die technology with a state-of-the-art junction termination (JTE) design, these rectifiers offer high power density, fast switching times with soft recovery and excellent reliability. They are encapsulated in a D2PAK Real-2-Pin Package (SOT8018), which offers the same package outline as the standard D2PAK package but has only two pins instead of three (the middle cathode pin has been removed). This increases the pin-to-pin distance from 1.25mm to over 4mm, which allows to meet the creepage and clearance requirements stated in the IEC 60664 standard.

“These recovery rectifiers further demonstrate Nexperia’s expertise in the field of semiconductor device packaging” according to Frank Matschullat, Head of Product Group Power Bipolar Discretes at Nexperia. “By taking the innovative step of removing the cathode pin from a standard D2PAK package, Nexperia has created a Real-2-Pin package that can meet the creepage and clearance requirements, in particular for high voltage automotive applications.”
