Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has expanded its offering of TMBS Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers with 12 new 45 V devices in three power package options. The units feature a wide range of current ratings, from 10 A to 40 A, the company says.

With extremely low forward voltage drops down to 0.51 V typical at 20 A, the rectifiers are optimized for use in solar cell junction boxes as bypass diodes for protection, according to Vishay. The devices include the single-chip V(B,F)T1045BP, V(B,F)T2045BP, V(B,F)T3045BP, and V(B,F)T4045BP. Each device is offered in the power TO-220AC, ITO-220AC and TO-263AB packages.

All rectifiers feature a 200 degrees C maximum junction temperature in DC forward current without reverse bias (t � 1 hour). The devices are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC, the company adds.
