Vishay thyristors and diodes meet AEC-Q101

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced 37 high-voltage thyristors and diodes for automotive applications. Qualified to AEC-Q101, the devices have repetitive voltages from 600 to 1600V and wide current ranges in three package options.

The devices are available in surface-mount DPak (TO-252AA) and D²Pak (TO-263AB) packages and in the through-hole TO-247AD.

The nine thyristors deliver continuous RMS on-state current from 12 to 79A, while the 28 standard and fast recovery diodes have forward current from 8 to 65A. All devices provide up to 1000V/µs immunity.

The thyristors and diodes are designed for use in the 50 to 60Hz AC line rectification stage for on-board battery chargers in electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), where they supply a full range of charging power from 3kW to over 30kW.

For inrush current limiting, the thyristors enable soft-start functionality without the use of resistors and bulky mechanical relays.

Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 12 to 14 weeks.
