Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. has expanded its portfolio of diodes with the addition of six low reverse-current Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs). With a peak reverse voltage of 40V, the new CCS15F40, CUS15F40, CBS10F40, CUS10F40, CTS05F40, and CUS05F40 are suitable for voltage-boosting circuits in white LED backlights and for liquid crystal displays in mobile devices (including smartphones and tablet PCs), according to the company.
The reverse current of the CCS15F40, one of the new products, is 25μA (max), and the new SBD’s thermal runaway temperature is 35°C higher than previous products, which contributes to stable circuit operations, the company reports. The CCS15F40 features fast switching due to low total capacitance of 130pF (typ.) @VR=0V.
A low reverse current contributes to the low power consumption of the device, making thermal runaways unlikely, even in high-temperature environments.
The new SBDs are available now.
