Our comprehensive range of rectifier diodes offers class leading performance and reliability. Devices with blocking voltages from 400V up to 6kV are available making them ideal for applications with line voltages up to 2kV. Optimised to offer low conduction losses, these devices are ideally suited to line frequency applications including input rectifiers for variable speed drives, traction converters, trackside substations, welding and DC power supplies. Featuring compression bonded, alloyed Silicon wafer construction, these devices feature low thermal impedance and high overload capacity and are designed to survive even the most arduous applications.
The latest additions to the IXYS UK Westcode Ltd Rectifier Diode family are the new 56mm dia Si Rectifier Diodes. The new package designs have proven alloyed technology for better transient thermal and surge ratings, offering approximately 40% more current rating than 50mm products in the same space envelope.
Fast Recovery Diodes
Fast Recovery Diodes are an essential complement to any switching device and are more often than not the limiting factor in the design and performance of modern power converters. To address the needs of our customers, we have developed an unparalleled range of Fast Recovery Diodes. These diodes are available with blocking voltages up to 6 kV making them suitable for operation with DC link voltages up to 3.3 kV and average current ratings to 4 kA depending upon type. The devices utilise compression bonding along with both alloyed and floating silicon technologies to deliver robust devices that you can rely on in demanding applications. This range has been re-

These parts are particularly suitable where soft recovery is required, such as RCD snubbers, voltage clamping and snubberless applications
Soft Recovery Diodes
Featuring a combination of the latest developments in lifetime engineering technologies. These products are designed to offer the lowest practical values of reverse recovery current whilst offering wide safe operating area and high di/dt capability required by modern switching components such as IGBT's and GCT's as well as pulsed power applications. Next generation parts currently in development will be released shortly.
