X-REL Semiconductor launches a High-Temperature, 40V / 80V Diode Family

X-REL diodes are designed for Down-hole, Automotive, Aeronautics & Aerospace applications.

Grenoble, France, 28th November 2012 - Following the announcement of its XTRM products family (-60°C to +230°C) of high-temperature and extreme reliability electronics components, X-REL is proud to announce the availability of new products belonging to its diode family: XTR1N0415 / XTR1N0450 are diodes with a reverse voltage above 55V. XTR1N0815 / XTR1N0850 are diodes with a reverse voltage above 90V.

Datasheets for the products can be downloaded here and here, respectively.

Each part is composed of four electrically independent, well-matched diodes in a single piece of silicon, which can be used individually. Targeted applications are general rectification, voltage blocking and clamping, power supplies, reliability-critical, automotive, aeronautics & aerospace, and down-hole.

All these products offer several possible packaging configurations and samples are available to customers. Read more about the products on X-REL’s web site www.x-relsemi.com.

“Having four diodes in a single package brings a lot of flexibility to our customers, and also helps to minimize the bill-of-materials. As with all of our XTRM hi-rel and hi-temp products, these diodes are qualified to operate beyond the range -60°C to +230°C,” said Gonzalo Picún, Chief Technical Officer at X-REL.

X-REL is also starting to offer high-temperature SiC Diodes to qualified customers. Readers should contact X-REL should they wish to be one of the first to profit from this breakthrough technology.
