Diodes' automotive-compliant super barrier rectifier (SBR®) diodes employ patented and proprietary technology and can significantly reduce power loss and lower operating temperatures in automotive applications. The SBR10M100P5Q (10 A, 100 V) and SBR8M100P5Q (8 A, 100 V) feature low forward voltage drop (0.88 V), ultra-low reverse leakage (2 µA), and fast switching speeds (16 ns, 18 ns for SBR10M100). Combined, these features can reduce system efficiency losses up to 30% compared to Schottky barrier diode technology and reduce energy consumption and running costs. Generating less heat reduces the cost of cooling components and provides a more reliable end product. SBR technology is a drop-in replacement for existing Schottky diodes; it can deliver immediate benefits without any costly redesign effort and reduces time-to-market for existing systems that need to meet more stringent limits.
