IXYS Corp., a provider of power semiconductors and ICs for power conversion, has released a new high-voltage diode called DNA30E2200PA. This 2200 V specialized rectifier in a TO-220 housing is designed as a decoupling diode for photovoltaic systems.
According to the company, the product features excellent electrical characteristics, ruggedness and reliability. The diode is designed and optimized to fulfill all industrial standards and covers the enhanced requirements for photovoltaic systems (IEC 62548). This new standard includes an increase of the system voltage that leads to the higher voltage requirements for the specialized power semiconductors in these applications.
‘The DNA family demonstrates IXYS' focus on developing products for the growing needs of application-specific standard products in the renewable energy sector,’ says Dr. Nathan Zommer, CEO of IXYS Corp. ‘Although these products were developed for the solar PV sector, it finds numerous applications in other high-efficiency energy conversion applications.’
